Book of the week

No Smoke Without Fire By Jill Morrell.

The ideal present for any relative/friend/client incarcerated in some hell-hole jail and left to rot. This is the book every prison library has been crying out for. Miscarriages of justice are so commonplace that someone has written an ABC guide to coping from the time of arrest to mounting a campaign and post-release care. While lacking depth at 51 pages, it is presented in easy stages by Jill Morrell, former girlfriend of Beirut hostage John McCarthy, published by The Bridgewater Four Support Group and illustrated by cartoonist Steve Bell. Copies are available from Liberty or the Prison Reform Trust.
