Publisher's Summary

A Prayer Before Dawn is the true story of one man's fight to survive inside Klong Prem prison, the notorious Bangkok Hilton. Billy Moore traveled to Thailand to escape a life of drug addiction and alcoholism. He managed to overcome his inner demons for a time but relapsed after trying ya ba, a highly addictive form of methamphetamine. Moore's life quickly descended into chaos, drug dealing, and violence until he was eventually arrested and imprisoned in Klong Prem, a place where life has no value.

A Prayer Before Dawn is no ordinary prison memoir; it's the story of one man's struggle to survive in one of the world's toughest prisons. It's also a story of redemption in the most unlikely of places.

Honest and gripping story excellent narration

I love Thailand prison books and this didn't disappoint. More open and honest than many and the narrator makes you feel as if you in bar and he's telling you about his ordeal.

I'd love a second book to see what life after the horrors of Thailand is like.

Overall great writing and great narration.
