Written by an ex-prison governor, this book describes how a battle of wits goes on between the governor and his quarry. This can be dangerous for the unwary and those more orthodox.Each plots the downfall of the other and learns as they develop and mature. A professional reputation is made on the one hand; the ability to source drugs and weapons and plot escapes, on the other. Prisoners being allowed to set a violent agenda serve neither the public interest nor the public purse. We need informers but they are rarely admired. Nevertheless, this book demonstrates the role informers have to play in keeping the public safe. No prisoner rehabilitation can take place whilst the violent minority rule the roost. Born and brought up in Bradford, an advert for a career in the prison service caught Phil O'Brien's eye. He applied, was accepted and in his forty year career he went all round the country into every type of prison. He retired as a governor working in both the public and private sectors.
