About this Item

Hardback. Foreword by Michael Mansfield Q.C. On April 15, 1991, after collapsing in the bathroom of the family home and despite Kevin's desperate attempts at resuscitation, 4yr old Mandy Allman's brave battle against cerebral palsy ended in tragedy. Kevin, who had loved his girlfriend's daughter like a father, was devastated by her death. A day later, he was charged with her murder. Police, pathologists and lawyers all seized on Mandy's bruise-covered body as evidence of a serious physical assault, and in January 1992 Kevin Callan began a term of life imprisonment at Wakefield Prison. Disillusioned, rejected by Mandy's mother and deprived of his freedom, Kevin immersed himself in medical literature, determined to prove that Mandy could not have died in the manner alleged. With the aid of Philip Wrightson, a neurosurgeon from New Zealand, Kevin was able to uncover fresh evidence about Mandy's head injuries evidence that completely overturned the findings of the original postmortem. This is Kevin Callan's moving account of his tireless campaign for freedom and truth - n ot just the story of one man's struggle to prove his own innocence - it is also a savage indictment of the state of criminal justice in modern Britain. 176pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Lightly browned pp. o/w Nr. F. in F. dw. Bookseller Inventory # 15575
