The deadliest Glasgow gang war of a generation--between the Daniel and Lyons families--was sparked by an opportunistic cocaine theft that unleashed a decade of murderous violence. Homes were firebombed while children slept, families were ripped apart, and witnesses forced into protection. The explosive story of what happened as the Daniel-Lyons feud spiraled out of control and engulfed an entire community, this book chronicles the death of 21-year-old Michael Lyons at a north Glasgow garage, the shooting in broad daylight outside a suburban supermarket, and the desecration of eight-year-old cancer victim Garry Lyons's grave--a sickening low. Chronicling the efforts of a band of parents who made a brave stand against allowing their community center to be used as the Lyons's gang hut, this book demonstrates how their coalition won the battle against violence and intimidation and exposed a shocking and murky nexus between police officers, politicians, and the underworld.
