A Spectacular Break from a Criminal, Dark Past
Sins of Fathers
Like many young men growing up in south London in the 70s, Michael Emmett idolised his father Brian, a contemporary of the Great Train Robbers and the Kray Brothers. As a result, Michael followed in his dad’s footsteps and at 18-years-old, he joined the family business and entered the world of organised crime.
Under his father’s tutelage, Michael’s criminal activities funded a reckless lifestyle marked by drugs, sex and violence. It all came to a crashing halt, when in 1993, Michael and his father were arrested in a dramatic confrontation with the police during a £13 million smuggling operation. Michael was sentenced to twelve years behind bars and would serve his time in the same prison as his father.
But behind the walls of HMP Exeter, Michael found something he never expected – answers. After joining an Alpha prayer group in prison, he had an experience that would shake the very foundations of his life.See more details about this Book
