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.

Praise for Heaven

Praise for Jeffrey Archer:
 
“The books form the most detailed and illuminating account of life spent under lock and key since Dostoyevsky.”  
---Mail on Sunday (UK)
 
“Compelling reading. . . . Archer knows how to tell a story.  He exposes real problems in the penal system.”
---Houston Chronicle on A Prison Diary
 
“A tale that is not only important but true.”
---The Washington Post on A Prison Diary
 
“The finest thing that he’s ever written . . . so clear and crisp is the prose, a vivid and almost ‘live’ account that bubbles with Dickensian detail and a Shavian sense of outrage…. Riveting.”
---Independent on Sunday (UK) on A Prison Diary
 
“Surprisingly effective . . . a devastating critique . . . written simply and directly.”
---Sunday Times (UK) on A Prison Diary
 
False Impression…may be a worthy successor to the still bestselling The Da Vinci Code….Sail along from one high crime to the next.”
---Liz Smith, The New York Post
 
“Archer’s usual plot twists and fast pace make for an enjoyable page-turner.”
---Library Journal (starred review) on False Impression
