Fearless Freddie: The Life and Times of Freddie Mills
Chris Evans


This is the story of Britain’s first boxing superstar. A legend who had it all: a young family, regular TV appearances and a thriving nightclub, surely someone as outgoing would not kill himself? However, Freddie was a man with dark secrets. Did those secrets drive him to take his own life or was it something more sinister?
