Product description

Review

The inside story of one of the great political, legal and human dramas of the last decade... a remarkable story of a remarkable woman. --Duncan Campbell, The Guardian

A compelling read! Janis Sharp fought every single day for her son Gary McKinnon's freedom, knowing that without her stamina, determination and most of all her boundless love, Gary would have been at the mercy of a US government who wanted to make an example of him. Janis has all my admiration and respect, not only as a mother but as a tireless campaigner against an unjust law. The day Gary was liberated of the terrifying fear of extradition was a great day not just for him and his family, but for all of us - a day when justice, compassion and human decency prevailed. --Trudie Styler

[It] is impossible not to be touched by her determination to convince the system to take notice of the little people who so often get lost in it... Bravo Janis! --Sian Griffiths, The Sunday Times

It is a fascinating read: inspiring, shocking... Equally, it comes as no real surprise that Sharp's book has an option to be turned into a film. --Stefanie Marsh

It is a book that every PR operator should read... There is no "reaching out" in Ms Sharp's book, no "share of voice". There is just unaffected and deeply affecting prose... I know from late-night email exchanges with her that she can outwrite most of those who make a living from it. --Michael Skapinker, Financial Times

About the Author

JANIS SHARP was born in Glasgow. She moved to London when Gary was a child and pursued a musical career. She later became a foster parent, going on to care for nearly fifty children.
