It is not another story about escape;it is captivating, entertaining, super interesting!Even though he is like Papillon, the stories are somewhat different.

I read this book as entitled "Escape" - fascinating story of how one young man escaped from a Mexico City prison in the 1970's. The story was made more fascinating by a good friend's firsthand account of how she knew this young man and was a visitor to this terrible "inescapable" Lecumberri prison.
