HMP Holloway was the biggest women's prison in Europe, historically holding many infamous female criminals and eliciting intrigue and fascination from the public. The End of the Sentence documents the rich and varied psychotherapeutic work undertaken by dedicated specialists in the intense and often difficult environment where attempts to provide psychological security were often undermined by conflicting ideas of physical security.

The chapters detail the complexity and struggle to establish relationships with often resistant staff, the prisoners themselves, and the wider social environment which culminated in the closure of the prisson and the moving of the women out of the city. The End of the Sentence examines the eternal effort to find closure and experience a "good ending" when the possibility of a new beginning may seem remote.
