In the 1970s, Jimmy Moody joined a team of criminals to form the Chainsaw Gang, who went on to become that decade's most successful armed robbers. In 1980, Moody was in Brixton Prison awaiting trial for his pivotal role with the gang, when his life took its next dramatic twist. One of his fellow inmates was Provisional IRA hero Gerard Tuite and the two men joined forces with a third inmate to pull off a dramatic jailbreak. Moody was never recaptured, and soon his murderous skills were being put to use in Northern Ireland. His secretive freelance hits struck so much fear into the province's security services, that the Thatcher government put a three-man SAS hit squad on his tail. By the early 1990s, Jimmy Moody's list of enemies read like a who's who of criminals and authorities from both sides of the water. Enhanced by exclusive contributions from Moody's family and the IRA's Gerard Tuite, this sensational story expertly documents each chapter of Moody's violent, crime-filled life.
