Jimmy Two Guns

Jimmy Two Guns

By James J. McIntyre



The astonishing true story of Glasgow gangland confidant James McIntyre, aka Jimmy Two Guns James 'Jimmy Two Guns' McIntyre was Glasgow's go-to gangland lawyer and consigliere to one of Scotland's foremost crime families. His maverick approach to the law and a client list that included some of the most feared gangland figures of the time - including the McGoverns and Paul Ferris - ensured that he was always in demand but under the constant scrutiny of the authorities. Now Jimmy Two Guns recounts the cases he handled, the strokes he pulled, plus his arrests, a high-speed car chase with the drug squad, his time in 'the cooler' for allegedly attempting to murder a cop and much more. He tells how he bounced back after being the target of a near-fatal underworld hit, before being arrested by an armed response unit for possession of two pistols, and reveals with wit and a sharp pen what it's really like being a lawyer for the underdog. Whatever you thought you knew about crime and justice, think again - because for Jimmy Two Guns, the truth has always been stranger than fiction. 'Crooked judges, bent cops and hypocrites in high places - the most truthful legal memoir you'll ever read. Superb.' Matthew Hall, bestselling novelist and BAFTA-winning screenwriter of Keeping Faith 'James McIntyre was a legal barracuda swimming both sides of the line; this memoir is his modus operandi.' G.F. Newman, creator of Law & Order and Judge John Deed
