A Prisoner Of Birth by JEFFREY ARCHER


Original Title: A Prisoner Of Birth

If Danny Cartwright had proposed to Beth Wilson the day before, or the day after, he would not have been arrested and charged with the murder of his best friend. And when the four prosecution witnesses are a barrister, a popular actor, an aristocrat and the youngest partner in an established firm’s history, who is going to believe his side of the story? Danny is sentenced to twenty-two years and is sent to Belmarsh prison, the highest security jail in the land, from where no inmate has ever escaped. But everyone has underestimated Danny’s determination to seek revenge and Beth’s relentless quest to win justice . . . डॅनी कार्टराईटने बेथ विल्सनला लग्नाची मागणी आदल्या दिवशी किंवा दुस-या दिवशी घातली असती, तर त्याच्यावर आपल्या जिवलग मित्राचा खून केल्याचा आरोप ठेवण्यात आला नसता आणि त्याला अटकसुद्धा झाली नसती. जेव्हा फिर्यादी पक्षाकडून चार नामांकित साक्षीदार आणण्यात येतात : एक बॅरिस्टर, एक लोकप्रिय अभिनेता, एक उच्चकुलीन प्रतिष्ठीत व्यक्ती आणि एक नावाजलेल्या फर्ममधला तरुण, धडाडीचा पार्टनर... तेव्हा तुमची बाजू कोर्टात कोण ऐकून घेणार? डॅनीला बावीस वर्षांच्या जन्मठेपेची शिक्षा होते. त्याला बेलमार्श तुरुंगात पाठवण्यात येतं. देशातल्या सर्वांत जास्त कडक सुरक्षाव्यवस्थेसाठी प्रसिद्ध असलेला हा तुरुंग! आजवर कोणताही कैदी तिथून पळून जाऊ शकलेला नाही. पण डॅनीच्या अंतर्यामी एक आग भडकलेली आहे. आपल्यावर झालेल्या अन्यायाचा बदला घेण्याची आग. ती आग त्याला जाळते आहे; पण याची किंचितही कल्पना स्पेन्सर क्रेग, लॉरेन्स डेवनपोर्ट, जेराल्ड पेन आणि टोबी र्मोिटमर यांना नाही. डॅनीला साथ आहे त्याच्या प्रेयसीची, बेथची. डॅनीच्या नावाला लागलेला कलंक धुवून काढण्यासाठी तिनेही न्यायालयाची दारं ठोठावलेली आहेत. सच्चा दिलाच्या या प्रेमिकांच्या अथक प्रयत्नांनी अखेर त्या चौघांना पळता भुई थोडी होते. जिवावर उदार होऊन अखेर रणांगणातून पळ काढावा लागतो. `केन आणि एबल' नंतरची तेवढीच जबरदस्त, वाचकांची मती गुंग करणारी, शेवटच्या पानापर्यंत वाचकांच्या मनाचा ताबा घेऊन त्यांना खिळवून टाकणारी ही कादंबरी!

A Prison Diary by Jeffrey Archer


Original Title: A Prison Diary

On July 19, 2001, following a conviction for perjury, international bestselling author Jeffrey Archer was sentenced to four years in prison. Prisoner FF8282, as Archer is now known, spent the first three weeks in the notorious HMP Belmarsh, a high-security prison in South London, home to murderers, terrorists and some of Britain's most violent criminals. On the last day of the trial, his mother dies, and the world's press accompany him to the funeral. On returning to prison, he's placed on the lifer's wing, where a cellmate sells his story to the tabloids. Prisoners and guards routinely line up outside his cell to ask for his autograph, to write letters, and to seek advice on their appeals. For twenty-two days, Archer was locked in a cell with a murderer and a drug baron. He decided to use that time to write an hour-by-hour diary, detailing the worst three weeks of his life. When A Prison Diary was published in England, it was condemned by the prison authorities, and praised by the critics.

A Prisoner Of Birth by Jeffrey Archer


Original Title: A Prisoner Of Birth

International bestseller and master storyteller Jeffrey Archer is at the very top of his game in a story of fate and fortune, redemption and revenge. If Danny Cartwright had proposed to Beth Wilson the day before, or the day after, he would not have been arrested and charged with the murder of his best friend. But when the four prosecution witnesses are a barrister, a popular actor, an aristocrat, and the youngest partner in an established firm's history, who is going to believe your side of the story? Danny is sentenced to twenty-two years and sent to Belmarsh prison, the highest-security jail in the land, from where no inmate has ever escaped. However, Spencer Craig, Lawrence Davenport, Gerald Payne, and Toby Mortimer all underestimate Danny's determination to seek revenge, and Beth's relentless quest to pursue justice, which ends up with all four fighting for their lives, Thus begins Jeffrey Archer's most powerful novel since Kane and Abel, with a cast of characters that will remain with you long after you've turned the last page. And if that is not enough, prepare for an ending that will shock even the most ardent of Archer's fans.

Discipline Punish by Michel Foucault


Original Title: Discipline Punish

In this brilliant work, the most influential philosopher since Sartre suggests that such vaunted reforms as the abolition of torture and the emergence of the modern penitentiary have merely shifted the focus of punishment from the prisoner's body to his soul.

The Prisoner In His Palace by Will Bardenwerper


Original Title: The Prisoner In His Palace

In the haunting tradition of In Cold Blood and The Executioner’s Song, this remarkably insightful and surprisingly intimate portrait of Saddam Hussein lifts away the top layer of a dictator’s evil and finds complexity beneath as it invites us to take a journey with twelve young American soldiers in the summer of 2006. Trained to aggressively confront the enemy in combat, the men learn, shortly after being deployed to Iraq, that fate has assigned them a different role. It becomes their job to guard the country’s notorious leader in the months leading to his execution. Living alongside, and caring for, their “high value detainee” in a former palace dubbed The Rock and regularly transporting him to his raucous trial, many of the men begin questioning some of their most basic assumptions—about the judicial process, Saddam’s character, and the morality of modern war. Although the young soldiers’ increasingly intimate conversations with the once-feared dictator never lead them to doubt his responsibility for unspeakable crimes, the men do discover surprising new layers to his psyche that run counter to the media’s portrayal of him. Woven from first-hand accounts provided by many of the American guards, government officials, interrogators, scholars, spies, lawyers, family members, and victims, The Prisoner in His Palace shows two Saddams coexisting in one person: the defiant tyrant who uses torture and murder as tools, and a shrewd but contemplative prisoner who exhibits surprising affection, dignity, and courage in the face of looming death. In this artfully constructed narrative, Saddam, the “man without a conscience,” gets many of those around him to examine theirs. Wonderfully thought-provoking, The Prisoner in His Palace reveals what it is like to discover in one’s ruthless enemy a man, and then deliver him to the gallows.
