About the Author

Jonathan Aitken was Chief Secretary to the Treasury and a Tory MP. He has published a number of books including an acclaimed life of Charles Colson, Pride and Perjury as well as two collections of hymns and prayers for Continuum.


"MAIL ON SUNDAY "Aitken's earlier volumes of memoirs, Pride and Perjury, which he completed a few days before entering prison, chronicled his fall from grace. It was more muddled in its intent, veering uneasily between abject penitence and furious self-righteousness. Here in this second volume, his state of mind, and therefore the tone of the book, are both clearer."
