Rescued after four days without food, he was sent back to Scotland where rage grew inside him In Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester, and London's Soho, his fighting skills and courage made him a man with a reputation among the gangs and violent men running the clubs where vice and prostitution were rife. Riding with a biker gang, trained as a bodyguard, and graduating to ""debt collecting"" for international racketeers, his life was full of brutality and crime. It was only when serving his third jail sentence, he found the way to escape the prison of brutality that his life had become. A remarkable story of one man's escape from his past life by finding the truth that set him free.

Fabulous read, finished it in two days. This is how true crime books should be. Reads like a novel for a biography that’s pretty rare. Love the ending, you won’t be disappointed

Fantastic read, couldn’t put it down and read it in a day and a half. Powerful account of a life of bad choices due to family breakdown. This guy lived many lives and that’s what keeps the pace fast moving. A real true crime book with a great ending

I Love this book, couldn’t put it down. Seriously can’t wait for it to be turned into a film. This book should be read by everyone from every walk of life and wow what a conclusion.

Sorry ordered through another site but felt compelled to leave a review. I thought this might be another self promoting hard man gangster story but I was wrong. It’s a wonderful insight into a life that was affected by divorce. How all of the terrible decisions the main character made were as a result of trauma in his childhood. I found myself rooting for him one minute and then angry at him the next until the finale. Page turning and a must read, enjoy.

Definitely one of the best true crime books I have read to date. I’m from Glasgow so could relate to much of his story and I like the way he does not try and make out that’s he’s some hard man like Jimmy Boyle. A compelling story with a great twist at the end...good to see a new life out of the ashes. A great read for men and women alike and I read it in two days which is a minor miracle

Saw this man speak at an event in scotland and I was blow away by his story. Read the old version of his book and this new one reads even better. But it, read it and share it
