Faded Glory Hardback
by David Essex
From a life on the streets to the glory of the boxing ring.
London's East End, 1953: Albert Kemp is a lonely widower, whose only son was killed in the war.
Now he works in a pub by the railway arches. Downstairs is a traditional bar, upstairs is a famous boxing gym.
It is here that Albert brings Danny, a fatherless boy who he rescues from gang life on the streets.
But as Danny begins to grow into a champion, the predators start to circle, luring him with glittering promises back into a life of crime.
Will Danny listen to his wise old mentor? Or will the prospect of fame and money be too tempting?
