The Wilderness Years by Reg McKay
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In October 1984 T.C. Campbell and Joseph Steele were found guilty of murdering six members of the Doyle family in a deliberately set house fires. Both men have always protested their innocence and in "Indictment: Trial by Fire" Campbell and investigative journalist Reg McKay documented the deliberate miscarriage of justice and the farcical trial that led to their incarceration. This title is the story of T.C.'s life in prison. The beatings and torture he withstood time after time, the solitary confinement and hunger strikes, and his indefatigable struggle against the machinations of the judiciary system. These struggles culminated in the courts granting him interim freedom on December 11 2001, pending an appeal that is his final chance to have his name cleared.

Author Biography

T.C. CAMPBELL grew up in the rat-infested slums of Glasgow before progressing through the city's ganglands in his teenage and adult years. Wrongly imprisoned in 1984, Campbell remained in the Scottish prison system for seventeen years, fighting against the injustice of his incarceration and the corrupt system which condemned him. A social worker in Glasgow for twenty years, REG McKAY has written for a living since 1998. A widely published journalist, he is also the author of None So Pretty - the Sexing of Rebecca Pine and The Ferris Conspiracy (co-written with Paul Ferris).
