Published work: If A Wicked Man

Description of If A Wicked Man:

John Lawson was not a man to mess with. In Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester and London’s Soho his fighting skills and courage made him a man with a reputation among the gangs and violent men running the clubs where drugs and prostitution were rife.

Riding with a Biker gang and graduating to ‘debt collecting’ for international racketeers his life was full of brutality and crime. It was only when serving his third jail sentence that he found the strength and the way to escape the prison of brutality that his life had become.

A remarkable story of one man’s escape from his past life as he determined to live a better one.
