Rotting in the Bangkok Hilton

The Gruesome True Story of a Man Who Survived Thailand's Deadliest Prison

by T.M. Hoy

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
6 Hrs. 52 Min.


A collection of unspeakable degradation, fear, and agony through the eyes of an American locked up abroad.

Prison is harsh enough, but as a foreigner (farang) in a strange land, jail time is an even more horrifying reality. Rotting in the Bangkok Hilton is a collection of short stories chronicling T. M. Hoy's descent into the harrowing world of Southeast Asian prison life. Through his eyes, listeners will experience the bizarre events of daily life in a Thai maximum security prison: feel the weight of the chains he wears; the stomachaches from lack of food; witness the murders, drug overdoses, torture, and unbridled cruelty that ensues.

Sentenced to life in prison, Hoy does his best to accept the fate he's been given. While attempting to "adjust" to this third-world hellhole, he contracts tuberculosis and nearly loses his life.

Hoy's stories are brutal and his words are heart-wrenching. Go places you've only seen in your nightmares, to a world in which few survive, and none emerge unscathed...and if you're lucky, you'll die before you really begin to suffer.
