22cm x 14cm. 203, [4] pages + advertisements. Illustrated wrappers. Reeve (born 1948) was sent to Broadmoor, a high security psychiatric hospital for the criminally insane, at age 15 for murder. Inside Broadmoor he studied, gaining a degree in sociology and became focussed on radical politics, lobbying for gay liberation and prisoner right. During this time he also strangled a fellow patient to death. After 17 years of imprisonment he escaped and remained at large for one year before being arrested in the Netherlands following a gun fight during which he killed a policeman. This autobiography tells of his childhood, time in Broadmoor, his escape, up to his time in Amsterdam with an appendix containing details of the gun fight. Very minor creasing and wear to cover. Minor foxing to edges, very minor elsewhere. Previous owner's signature on rear advertisements. Shipped Weight: .27 kilos. ISBN: 0946097097. ISBN/EAN: 9780946097098.
