Bob Cox was 21 years old when he killed his parents with a shotgun and was sentenced to prison under ‘the Governor’s pleasure.’ In 1976, at the age of 33, he converted to Catholicism, and three years later he was released from prison into the care of a Catholic community called Guadalupe House. He became an important member and helped care for others in this community. He eventually moved into a group home as a carer, and later into a flat on his own. He died on January 15, 2008. He wrote this account of his early life and prison experience, as well as his subsequent conversion to Catholicism, which makes for a fascinating and challenging read.
