This is a true story about real people set in the 1960-70's, Alan Stuart Hutcheson, a millionaire before forty had everything; a successful business, an exciting social life; a top model wife amongst a litter of lovers and he lost it all in one calamitous moment. After Military and Merchant Navy service, he became a champion, well-known top racing driver. Feeling a debt to society, he became a probation officer and learned a lot about police corruption, violence, and falsified evidence. One evening he was driving through West End London when an accident occurred at the mouth of Hyde Park underpass. One of the girls involved died a week later as a result of shocking medical negligence. Alan was charged with causing death by dangerous driving and given a two year prison sentence. During his first night he attempted suicide but with intensive medical care he survived.
