14 Days in Beijing Audiobook

By Chancellor Jackson

On April 4th, 2019, my luck runs out. The Beijing Police show up to my apartment unannounced and I’m arrested on drug charges. I get no information about the law, my rights, nothing. After 14 hours of sitting handcuffed in a holding cell, my destination is Beijing Jail No. 6.

I am in a cell with 14 Chinese men and 9 wooden beds for 24 hours a day. I have no idea how many days I will be here, or whether I will ever receive any information. Am I the only foreigner in this jail? How does this jail even work?

Does anyone even know I am here?
