Synopsis: HOTEL K: THE SHOCKING INSIDE STORY OF BALI'S MOST NOTORIOUS JAIL

Welcome to Hotel Kerobokan, or Hotel K, Bali's most notorious jail. Its walls touch paradise; sparkling oceans, surf beaches and palm trees on one side, while on the other it's a dark, bizarre and truly frightening underworld of sex, drugs, violence and squalor. Hotel K's filthy and disease ridden cells have been home to the infamous and the tragic: a Balinese King, Gordon Ramsay's brother, Muslim terror bombers, beautiful women tourists and surfers from across the globe. Petty thieves share cells with killers, rapists, and gangsters. Hardened drug traffickers sleep alongside unlucky tourists, who've seen their holiday turn from paradise to hell over one ecstasy pill. Hotel K is the shocking inside story of the jail and its inmates, revealing the wild 'sex nights' organised by corrupt guards for the prisoners who have cash to pay, the jail's ecstasy factory, the killings made to look like suicides, the days out at the beach, the escapes and the corruption that means anything is for sale - including a fully catered Italian jail wedding, or a luxury cell upgrade with a Bose sound system. The truth about the dark heart of Bali explodes off the page.

BONELLA, KATHRYN

about author

Kathryn Bonella has worked internationally as a journalist in television and print since completing a degree in journalism at Melbourne's RMIT University. She moved to London immediately afterwards, and worked for newspapers including the Evening Standard and the Daily Mail, as well as several tv programs.

After several years in London Kathryn returned to Australia to work full-time as a producer for 60 Minutes - covering stories ranging from; teeth - the debate over braces and extractions, (http://sixtyminutes.ninemsn.com.au/article/259072/straight-talk); the Bali bombings, to lighter celebrity interviews - including Robbie Williams, Reese Witherspoon and Princess Mary's wedding in Copenhagen.

But it was the story of Australian beauty school student, Schapelle Corby, - arrested at Bali airport with 4.2kgs of dope in her body board bag and sentenced to 20 years - that spring boarded Kathryn into writing books.
Covering the story for 60 Minutes, she got to know the 27-year-old beauty student and her family and they asked Kathryn to co-write her autobiography, titled NO MORE TOMORROWS. (Australian title; MY STORY)

Kathryn followed up writing another best seller, HOTEL K, - about Bali's most notorious prison, and a third book in what has become her Bali trilogy, SNOWING IN BALI - about Bali's top cocaine dealers, many who first moved to the island to surf but started trafficking to pay for the lifestyle.

These three books are all now international best sellers, published in several languages.
