'... a gritty and gripping dramatic series... lots of tension...and in very unHollywood
fashion, realistic.' - Variety
Based on the #1 international T.V. series now airing throughout the U.S., Prisoner Cell
Block H is unlike anything you've ever read...the unforgettable journey through the iron
gates of Wentworth Detention Center, where women - desperate, volatile women - struggle to
CONDEMNED . . .
The policewoman riveted her attention on the two young women sitting opposite
her in the paddy wagon.
"I'm going to tell you something for your own good, so listen hard. When the
two of you girls go into Wentworth, nobody's going to care what you think about anything.
If you sniffle around and complain you're innocent, Lynn, at first they'll laugh in you
face. Then they'll really start to resent you and make trouble for you for being a
nuisance. After all, all you got was ten years. That may seem like a long time to you, but
to some people it's no more than one long weekend.
"Ask your friend there, Karen Travers. She murdered her husband and she got
life. She's got it bad, but you've got it worse than you think, young lady. Those women
inside don't give a hoot about routine One, though when it comes to kidnapping and abusing
little kids, they're known to get angry."
"But I'm innocent," Lynn pleaded.
"I don't care," the policewoman replied coldly. "You were accused
and convicted and you stand guilty as charged."
"If I explain it to them, they'll believe me instead of that bunch of
lies," Lynn insisted.
"I'm tell you, you're asking for trouble," the policewoman warned.
"Girls like you get killed in prisons every day."
