Lyn Madden worked for twenty years as a prostitute, mostly in Dublin. Her career ended on the night she watched her lover and pimp John Cullen, throw a fire bomb through the window of Dolores Lynch's home. Dolores, who had 'escaped' from prostitution some years previously, perished along with her elderly mother and aunt. That murder shocked Lyn out of her dependence on John and enabled her to summon up the courage necessary to denounce him to the police. She began writing this book whilst awaiting the trial during which John Cullen was sentenced to eighteen years in jail. First published in 1987, Lyn's story is as compelling and shocking as ever, providing a stark and horrifying insight into life 'on the game' in Dublin.
