Ross Kemp's fascinating guide to the worst places in the world.
Want to know where to discover the perfect sunset in Fiji? How about a tropical paradise in St Lucia or one of the world’s beautiful natural wonders in the Alps? Well this is not the book for you.
But if you want to know about meeting transvestite prostitutes in a South African prison or being attacked for a can of tuna in the Congo, buying crack cocaine in a Venezuelan prison or being chased by dogs in a haunted house in Belize, then look no further.
Ross Kemp has visited the worst places in the world, and here they are in all their horror, in a handy A-to-Z format.
This is not one hell of a travel guide. This is a travel guide to hell.
This book compliments the TV shows he has done from the first On Gangs through to Extreme World. It is not a regurgitation of the TV show but interesting stories from "behind the scenes", which add to the show rather than repeat it. It is well written, although can be a bit in the style of the voice over on the show.
I also feel it is worth mentioning the narrator here as well. This is not narrated by Ross Kemp, however, you feel like you are listening to Ross Kemp when listening, albeit without the sometimes over emphasized phrasing, which helps you get lost in this book.
