Overview

THE SUNDAY TIMES TOP TEN BESTSELLER As seen on This Morning Back in the day, I was Governor of Security and Operations for HMP Wormwood Scrubs. If you're easily shocked or offended, you best look away now... Having worked for 16 years in a high-security women's prison dealing with the likes of Rosemary West and Myra Hindley, Vanessa Frake thought she'd seen it all. That was until she was transferred to the notorious Wormwood Scrubs. Thrust into a 'man's world', her no-nonsense approach and fearless attitude saw her swiftly rise through the ranks. From dealing with celebrity criminals and busting drug rings, to recruiting informers and being subject to violent attacks, this hard-hitting but often humorous memoir reveals all about life behind bars in unflinching detail. Now, for one last time, The Gov opens the prison gates. Prepare for the madness and horror of daily life with the UK's most ruthless criminals.

Author Information

Formerly Head of Security and Operations at Wormwood Scrubs, Vanessa Frake was awarded an MBE for her work for the prison service in 2012. She retired early from the prison service, after 26 years, while the Government funding was still in place and things were going well in her job - she wanted to go out on a high. Now, in a complete career change, she bakes cakes at Angela Reed's Cafe and volunteers at Wood Green animal sanctuary.
