Description

A major source for the BBC drama The Reckoning Winner of the 2015 Gordon Burn Prize and the 2015 CWA Non-Fiction Dagger Shortlisted for the Orwell Prize and the James Tait Black Prize 'An astonishing account' Observer 'A compulsive, colourful and chilling read' Sunday Times 'An extraordinary book' Mail on Sunday Dan Davies spent more than a decade on a quest to find the real Jimmy Savile, and interviewed him extensively over a period of six years before his death. Dan also interviewed scores of people, many of them unobtainable while Savile was alive. Jimmy Savile was cynical, calculating and predatory. He revelled in his status as a Pied Piper of youth and used his power to abuse the vulnerable and underage, all the while covering his tracks by moving into the innermost circles of the establishment. IN PLAIN SIGHT is a devastating and definitive account of a national figure turned national disgrace.
