Information
'Thoroughly worthy of your time . . . offers erudite insight. Those who want an eye-popping parade of gangster talk and graphic criminal case studies won't be disappointed'
Metro

In his acclaimed memoir A Few Kind Words and a Loaded Gun, Noel 'Razor' Smith told the brutal story of life as a violent, hardened criminal who had spent the near entirety of his adult existence behind bars. Now, in A Rusty Gun, he explains how he not only got out of jail, but also turned his back on crime.

The journey he undertook was overwhelming. Intense therapy designed to uncover the deepest roots of his antisocial behaviour laid him bare. Over five years, he, alongside some of Britain's most-dangerous prisoners, was effectively broken down and rebuilt into a citizen capable of taking his place in society. At long last, Noel was going straight.

One of the most candid accounts of criminal reform ever written, as well as a powerful portrait of the failures, and rare successes, of Britain's penal system, A Rusty Gun is an unforgettable story of life on the inside.
