Knife crime is sweeping Britain as the law of the blade rules on the streets and in the schools of our towns and cities. Many cases have gained notoriety - Ben Kinsella, the brother of an Eastenders actor killed for walking away from a fight he wasn't involved in - but many more hardly cause a stir, except to the victims, their families and friends whose lives are ruined forever. Now this book reveals the truth about the inexorable rise in knife crime and what - if anything - can be done to stop it.
