Jerry - By David Anglin (Ebook)
He looked upon the infamous Jerry Fishton, gazing deep into his eyes, looking far past his calm persona. Past the youthful features, that hid something so terrible. Something that when released would erupt onto the world, indiscriminately splashing all those below with a heated fury that seemed to gain its strength from the depths of hell.
He looked upon Jerry and fought back emotions. Emotions that caused his heart to hurt, as he knew that to look upon Jerry was to look upon the poster child to a lost generation consumed by a world of ill content...
They say Britain is in a crime epidemic that hasn’t been seen for a decade. Knife crimes up. Gun crimes up. Violent robberies are up.
But for those of us who have worked with young people and those in need we’ve seen this coming for a long time.
We’ve seen first hand the effects of austerity measures. Seeing with our own eye's the rise in families who need food banks. Families whose day to day lives have vastly changed. Though with this change their children have changed. Becoming a little bit harder a little bit colder. Willing to go that much further to get themselves out of a hopeless lifestyle.
These changes have been happening slowly, year upon year with the effects only now being felt in the wider community.
Jerry based on real-life events takes a thought-provoking look into the world of working with young offenders involved in some of the most heinous of crimes and what it takes to break the vicious cycle that so many of them are caught within.
For every book sold I'll be donating 20p to Frenford Youth Center as I've worked with them over many years and so know first hand the great work they carry out in the community.

For the past 9 years David Anglin has spent his time actively working with young offenders from some of the most troubled backgrounds. During this time he has gained much insight and experiences into the complex issues faced by those in the criminal justice system.
Academically he completed a degree in Psychology but his real experience and learning came from the university of Life and from the many characters he's met along this journey. Characters ranging from London's criminal underground to passionate business men and women who all have a burning ambition for a better life.
With these influences David, has been able to create vivid characters articulated into words that when read immediately shine through with authenticity and realism.
His greater hopes are that from his writing deeper conversations will be made that really delves deep into the difference between those who have and those who don't, and what can be done to bridge the gap between this ever-increasing divide.
