The story of how six innocent men were convicted of the biggest murder in British history, later dramatised by Granada Television as "Who Bombed Birmingham?", starring John Hurt as Chris Mullin.
"…one of the greatest feats ever achieved by an investigative reporter…" - Sebastian Faulks, Independent on Sunday
"A book that could put him in prison…Mr. Mullin….is either a liar or a hypocrite" - The Sunday Express
"As the House will be aware, the safety of these convictions has snce been challenged, notably in a book published by Mr Chris Mullin…I have examined all the material will great care. I am satisfied that there is new evidence that would justify my referring this case to the Court of Appeal and I have now done so." - Douglas Hurd, Home Secretary
"Loony left MP Chris Mullin has turned his twisted fight to free the six Birmingham pub bombers into a personal crusade." - The Sun
"Very occasionally a journalist starts an avalanche with a single gunshot: William Howard Russell of The Times on the condition of the British army in the Crimea; W. T. Stead of the Pall Mall Gazette on child prostitution in London in the 1890s; a handful of others. Chris Mullin and his TV colleagues belong in glorious company." - The Observer
