Jimmy Holland was born into a family suffering at the hands of their drunk and abusive father. At the age of just two weeks, he was placed into care, and the beginning of a life lived in a constantly changing environment of homes, authorities, and institutions began. Let down and frequently abused, it wasn't long before Jimmy strayed onto the wrong side of the tracks. Before long, the mold for a problem child was set. He quickly turned from substance abuse to drug use, and in turn, to crime. He soon became associated with the ringleaders of an infamous gang responsible for prison riots and hostage taking. A heart-felt, shocking, and despairing insight into life as a state-raised boy, Lost in Care is the heart-rending tale of a man who has lost his childhood and also lost his way.
Jimmy Holland has spent his life being moved between institutions, homes, and care. He has been involved in a catalog of prison hostage-taking sieges and attacks on prison staff and has earned the reputation as one of the most dangerous prisoners in the Scottish penal system. He is currently serving a sentence in prison and is eager to turn his life around. Stephen Richards has written and co-written a wide range of books. His TV credits include Panorama, Tonight With Trevor McDonald, and numerous crime related, national, and international TV documentaries. Currently, the maverick investigative journalist acts as a literary agent for crime writers, as well as writing more true crime books, producing and directing crime documentaries.
