Review:

'It goes deep into the mind of the abused boy who has become a troubled man.’ Mail on Sunday

‘Patrick Maguire...tells the sometimes unbearably poignant story of his childhood, sudden arrest, three years of prison and what came next.' Daily Mail

'Its power derives from Patrick himself...a damaged survivor with the burdens of a past he cannot shrug off. A devastating chronicle of injustice and blighted lives. It is moving and sad, and told without bitterness. It's not a happy story, but it is a necessary one.' Ronan Bennett, Guardian

‘Painfully honest and utterly compelling.’ Irish Mail on Sunday

About the Author:

Patrick Maguire is the youngest member of the Maguire family or the Maguire Seven, who became notorious for being accessories after the IRA Guildford bombing. Patrick was only fourteen when he and his family were arrested. It became clear that they had been wrongly accused and their convictions were soon quashed. Patrick's first book My Father's Watch is a memoir which records a series of traumatic events and comments on the injustices of the legal system.
