Description

This book was written under enemy fire in a tent in the desert during the second Gulf War. The author working for the Sunday Express was embedded with The British Harrier Force and survived between 17 and 22 incoming missile strikes whilst sitting in a chemical suit and gas mask typing away to take his mind off things. It is a fantasy action adventure based on the author's real-life battle to keep his family together when his wife has a break down and throws him and their two babies out of the house. When a judge later barred him from seeing the babies he brought up, ordering them be handed them back to the wife and her new lover he warned the author he could get 18 months for contempt. "Really 18 months for contempt of the British Family Court?" he replied; "How much do I get for utter contempt." Like magic the nasty, bullying officials float away the day a child reaches 15. Suddenly Daddy was free, it was like he had won his babies back again but they were both taller than him, one was 6 foot 1, he cried with pride, he cried for the loss of their childhood.show more
