VIKING HB/DJ,1999 1ST EDITION,PHOTOSFrom the Publisher:
Press reviews of the book
"As involving as any thriller, and rather more educational. Cathcart writes a sparse, tight prose, and takes the reader through the long narrative of assault, police incompetence, half-hearted internal ‘inquiries’ and public outcry with great tact." - Financial Times.
"One of the few genuinely informative accounts... An enthralling book which is the definitive history of the case so far... Eradicating (racism) will be a long and painful process. Brian Cathcart’s book will be a constant and unanswerable reminder to those responsible of the need to purse their task with determination and vigour. - Ham and High
