Knifer, Paperback Book


Drug addiction. Criminal behaviour. Murder... and all before his sixteenth birthday.From foster home to children's home to living rough on the streets, Cain never had a normal childhood.

By the age of 8 he was carrying a knife. Seven years later he was serving time for killing someone.Based on real events, ex-prison officer Ronnie Thompson tells Cain's shocking story and reveals what really happens to teenage offenders both on the streets and once they're behind bars.Prison riots, assaults on officers, roof-top protests and brutal acts of violence - this is an inside account of life in a young offender's institute and of an angry young man spiralling dangerously out of control.
