Softcover. Twenty-five when she was arrested in 1974 for the murder of 12 people in an army coach bombing, the author was imprisoned for 18yrs. She was forty-three when found innocent and released on appeal in May 1992. The author spent 15yrs as a Category A prisoner in Durham's grim and claustrophobic High Security Wing. In all it was to take 18yrs before the evidence which proved her innocence - yet was not disclosed at her trial - finally came to light. In this vivid, often harrowing account, she tells of the circumstances of her arrest, her several attempts at suicide once convicted, and her fight to keep sane during one of the harshest of prison sentences. A stark insight into the pettiness, brutality and, often black, humour of life in a women's prison. It is also a passionate indictment of our criminal system. An extraordinary survival story. With Index. 184pp. trade size softcover. V.v. lightly browned pp. o/w Nr. F. with no creasing to covers.
