Book Description

4 Sep 2003

In the number one-selling crime autobiography, Stop the Ride, I Want to Get Off, Dave Courtney wrote about his life of crime and how he had decided to put that all behind him, moving into the world of the media. This proved harder than he thought, as he details in his long awaited latest book, The Ride's Back On. For Dave faces a fierce test as he is accused by a corrupt policeman of being a grass, and although the court case ends up with Dave going free (and the policeman in jail), nevertheless Dave's reputation needs defending.

He defends it here in the best possible way: telling the world about what really goes on, both in court (dressed as a jester, and punching out the corrupt officer, for starters) and out of it - gunfights in Tenerife, porn films in LA, taking his own movie, Hell To Pay, to the Cannes film festival, plus getting caught in gang warfare. With Dave at the wheel, the ride's guaranteed to be a wild one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ride? More like a rollercoaster! 17 Oct 2002
By Mr. Roy Ellor VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I would normally expect a second volume of an autobiography to be somewhat paler than the first. Not this time. From Page One, Dave catapults you into a gripping story of bent coppers, media hype and his new found celebrity status.
Many similar books fail on account of there being not much original material left to cover. Here Dave tells a completely new account of his recent 100mph life, and the court case that could have seen him take a bullet in the head from associates had the charge of police informer been made to stick. From that we scream into Cannes, films and longhaul flights! Not once does this book sag, and Dave Courtney certainly lives up to and exceeds the promise of the three earlier books.
Dave is developing a trademark style to his writings; an ability to retain his ways of thinking and speaking but with a much more polished style and flow to his storytelling.
Another cracking read from Dodgy dave.

1.0 out of 5 stars Grass Talking Crap 2 Aug 2013
Courtney hilariously claims he got a not guilty in court for being a grass,of course there is no law against being a grass,so we know it's a smokescreen to hide the fact he was exposed as a police informer in court,gangland Legend Frankie Fraser told everybody to give DC a wide berth,foolishly people have fell for Courtney's denials,he is 100% a grass and 100% a crap writer.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great read 7 Jun 2010
By Elwood
If this book is true (and if you're reading this Mr Courtney, firstly hello and secondly I have no reason to doubt you) then it has certainly opened my eyes as to how our justice system works. A great read from start to finish and a smile on every page.
