Hardback. A sequel to the author's first book 'Bound for Broadmoor'. Following a knife attack on 3 au pair girls, the author was sent to Broadmoor to be detained under Section 60 of the 1959 Health Act. Four years later, and after a fight with the authorities for his freedom, he was released by a Mental Health Review Tribunal. When the gates closed behind him, his problems started. He went to Broadmoor a married man with children, an executive in industry, and having been a leading penal reformer with Lord Longford, as well as a much televised personality. He left Broadmoor penniless, without a family, very few friends, no home or job and with a reputation of being a dangerous man. Many said he would not make it. Freedom for Peter Thompson meant loneliness, fear and isolation. But his horror of violent films and concern for the mentally ill led him to major national debates and campaigns. Now after 5yrs of freedom, he recreates some of the battles which faced him on his release from Broadmoor. 145pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Ex-lib. with the usual markings, but a perfectly acceptable reading copy. G++ in G++ dw.
