The True Crime Biography of John Lawson, born in Scotland and raised in South Africa until the age of ten, where his policeman father locked him home alone and never returned. Rescued after four days without food, he was sent back to Scotland where rage grew inside him. In Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester, and London's Soho, his fighting skills and courage made him a man with a reputation among the gangs and violent men running the clubs where vice and prostitution were rife. Riding with a biker gang, trained as a bodyguard, and graduating to "debt collecting" for international racketeers, his life was full of brutality and crime. It was only when serving his third jail sentence, he found the way to escape the prison of brutality that his life had become. A remarkable story of one man's escape from his past life by finding the truth that set him free.

Tell us a little about yourself. At time of writing this I am 53yrs old, I live in the South East of England with my Wife Carolyn and her two Children Mya and Brandon. We have been married for ten years and attend a local church. I am in full time voluntary ministry and have lived without an income for twelve years. I am often invited to prisons around the world to share my story.
What was your motivation behind this project? To reach people with The Gospel message whom would not normally pick up a Christian book.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope that people whom read my book will be able to relate to mistakes I have made by the actions I took in life. I hope they may see a little of themselves in parts of my story and that at least a glimmer of hope might shine in them that if God could reach me and change my life then He can do the same for anyone.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? its important to understand your own testimony and writing this book reminded me of the wretch I was and the Joy I now have in Christ.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I love straight talking preachers like Voddie Baucham, John Piper, John McArthur, Jeff Durbin, Ray Comfort etc.
