Biographies & Memoirs of Criminals
All his life, ‘Johnnyboy’ Steele has been running. Firstly, from an abusive father, then from the rigours of an approved school and a young offenders jail, and, finally, from the harshness of adult prison. This book details how the Steele brothers staged the most daring breakout that Glasgow’s Barlinnie prison had ever seen and recounts what happens when their younger brother, Joseph, was falsely accused of the greatest mass murder in Scottish legal history.
If Johnnyboy had wings, he would have flown to help his family, but he would have to wait for freedom to use his expertise to publicise young Joe’s miscarriage of justice. This is a compelling, often shocking and uncompromisingly honest account of how the human spirit can survive against almost crushing odds. It is a story of family love, friendship and, ultimately, a desire for justice.
