On 10 August 2007, Helen's husband, Garry was brutally beaten by a gang of youths outside the family home in Warrington. He died two days later. After the ordeal of a ten-week trial and the murder conviction of three youths, Helen held a press conference, giving a speech that attracted national media attention and propelled her into the role of a campaigner for victims' rights and against the lawlessness that blights so many of our towns and cities. In this memoir, Helen recounts how her family was shattered by Garry's murder and of how good unexpectedly came out of evil. Her remarkable story is not one of politics and committees; it is about real people and the impact that crime has on us all.
