Hardback. The author, a close friend of Mills, questions the circumstances surrounding his death and offers up some startling conclusions. In a sleazy Soho back alley behind a night club was found the corpse of one of Britain's most popular sporting personalities. Freddie Mills, ex-boxing champion of the world and owner of the club, had died from a rifle bullet through the right eye. The inquest verdict of suicide has been disputed ever since by those who knew him. The author an established journalist and particular friend of Freddie's, determined to disclose the circumstances of the death, the anomalies of evidence, and previously unknown facts relating to the boxer's family, his character, and his 'last days'.
