Format: Paperback
I bought 4 copies of the book to share with my family and friends as I feel to be able to write about such personal tragedy takes an amazing amount of courage. This book tells of a fathers personal grief and determination to be able to campaign for a law to be changed at such a tragic time in your life. To take on the politicians and fight so tirelessly until the law was changed was so admirable and I don't think there are many people out there who would have the strength.
RIP Kevin xxx

A powerful book from the heart. A father's love and determination to change the law, for dink driving. To loose a son is hard enough, But Declan found the strength to fight the system and win ! And to change the law for anybody else who looses somebody they love at the hands of a drunk driver

A book needs a beginning, a middle and an end.

I didn't need to know about flights on private planes to Martha's Vineyard. I didn't need to know about Declan owing 10's of thousands to a Utility Company.

The actual story could have been condensed into 50 pages. The law needed changing and undoubtedly Declan and his group played a massive part in that. For that he is to be congratulated. I would have liked more substance about meetings with Government officials, the judiciary and other interested parties to see how they did it and how hurdles were overcome. All of that passed within a dozen pages.

Much more should have been made of Kevin's legacy and the good work done for charity and the golf academy.
Instead the story faded away with a bitterness towards the police, his ex-wife and the authorities. I was disappointed that as a Road Safety practitioner he felt his brother had been 'innocently targeted' for not wearing a seat belt. That doesn't send out the right message.

It could have been better.
