“This book is an exciting read, not only for its remarkable content but because of the opportunities for future research. … This study is clearly limited by time, number and type of participants, but these limitations do not prevent the study from breaking new ground in an innovative area, allowing imprisoned people to return and refute the voyeuristic cinematic gaze.” (Holly Dempsey, Crime Media Culture, April 12, 2021)
