undefined Ten Times As Bad
Ten Times As Bad, the life story of Mark Bowden, was published last week by Lulworth Cove. Mark was born in Sandbach, Cheshire, in the mid 1970s. Despite the prosperity of the area, Mark missed out on the opportunities that many children have and set off down a path which eventually led to several prison sentences for theft and drug dealing and eventually for a longer stretch for attempted murder. When Mark was a violent drug addict, he had a tendency towards extremes. “If it’s worth living for, it’s worth dying for”.
