In June 1992, author Roy Moxham did a very strange thing: he wrote to a  bandit in an Indian jail. Phoolan Devi was the controversial and charismatic 'Bandit Queen' hailed as a modern-day Robin Hood in the villages surrounding  Delhi. In revenge for her own gang rape, her followers killed 20 high-caste  Indians, which led to her surrender and imprisonment.

Struck by her story and appalled by her plight, Roy Moxham helped Phoolan  Devi obtain justice, offered her encouragement when she became an MP in India on  her release, and travelled with her for several years before she was finally  gunned down in 2001. Based on the diaries that documented their extraordinary  friendship, Moxham offers a fascinating portrait of a remarkable woman and  reveals the hidden face of India
