Publisher Comments:

Heaven, Jeffrey Archer's final volume in his trilogy of prison diaries, covers the period of his transfer from a medium security prison, HMP Wayland, to his eventual release on parole in July 2003. It includes a shocking account of the traumatic time he spent in the notorious Lincoln jail and the events that led to his incarceration there, and also shines a harsh light on a system that is close to its breaking point.
 
Told with humor, compassion, and honesty, the diary closes with a thought-provoking manifesto that will be applauded by reform advocates and the prison population alike.
Jeffrey Archer was educated at Oxford University. He was elected to the House of Commons in 1969 at age twenty-nine and appointed Deputy Chairman of the Conservative Party in 1985; in 1992 he was elevated to the House of Lords. All of his novels and short story collections—including Kane and Abel, Honor Among Thieves, Sons of Fortune, and most recently, False Impression—have been international bestsellers.

Jeffrey Archer manages to turn an every day account of life in prison into a page turner. The juxtaposition of Lord Archer's life before imprisonment -- and the continuing life of his wife, Mary, as she works to have his conviction overturned on appeal, along with the reality of life as a convicted felon is fascinating reading. His visitors and correspondents include the rich and famous of England. This is the last of three volumes -- Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven, in which Archer relates his progression from a maximum security prison -- with all the attendant restrictions, deprivations and dangers -- to the 'open' prison, where he finishes his sentence. I suggest that one reads them all and in order.
