Gangland - The Great Escapes

Author(s): James Morton; Susanna Lobez

True Crime

Since the arrival of the First Fleet, thousands of prisoners have escaped from prison, police stations, courts, prison vans and hospitals-even dentists' chairs. They have driven, walked, pedalled, swum or sailed away from custody. Some have killed or been killed in the process; a few have gone overseas or escaped from foreign prisons, and a handful have remained at home, undetected.



Gangland- The Great Escapesis filled with tall tales of crims-Ronald Ryan, Jockey Smith, Brenden Abbott, Julie Wright and Annie Davis, and many others-who have been recaptured in minutes and those who have stayed on the run.
