My Kirsty: End of the Fairytale

by Jean MacColl
£7.99   paperback  Blake Publishing (John Blake) (2014)

My Kirsty: End of the Fairytale by Jean MacColl Kirsty MacColl led a dazzling life - tender, creative, heroic and full of love.
 
This book, by her mother Jean MacColl, charts with moving insight Kirsty's early years and celebrates her brilliant career at the front rank of the music business in the 1980s and 1990s with such hits as the Pogues collaboration 'Fairytale of New York'.
 
It mourns her tragic and untimely death - killed by a speedboat in Mexican waters in December 2000. It also tells, with heartfelt truth, the shocking story of the elaborate cover-up and gross miscarriage of justice that followed and appeals for justice to be done in her name.
