I think this book is excellent. I felt for Duwayne Brooks reading this from his point of view. I cannot believe the way he was treated by the Met and how they got away with it, I was disgusted by their behaviour. I am so glad he got to tell the story from his perspective. A brave man, and a very gripping read.

This book is a bit hard going. I find the subject matter gripping but the style of writing is not great. I have not yet finished it after a couple of months and keep dipping into it and leaving it again.
Not the best, which is a shame.

I read this book after reading a book written by Mrs Lawrence. The picture Brooks depicted was very different from Mrs Lawrence's accounts. The book first of all revolves around rather a chaotic man/boy who many people may not trust immediately. But I soon realized that Brooks had a paranoia because of the death of his friend, Steve. The book tells the growth of a boy into a more stable man. The descriptions of racial prejudice in society and how black people have been treated by the Met Police are stunning. I never realized such things were happening. A very good read. It's worthwhile reading.

A very heartfelt, enlightening read.

Was great to finally learn an alternative perspective of this tragic part of history. Thank you Duwayne for sharing, it needed to be told.

May you someday find peace.
