Before a bereaved father could fight for justice, first he had to change the law. 'In the Name of the Son' is the true story of how a grieving father dealt with the loss of his eldest son following a road crash during Halloween weekend 1998. Declan's son, Kevin, was just nineteen when he died, after he unwittingly accepted a lift in a car driven by a drunk-driver, his friend, in Dunstable, Bedfordshire on 31st October 1998. Declan's grief of his son's death soon turned to anger when after being told by the local police force that there was no suspicion of drink-driving, he discovered that both the driver and surviving passenger had been on a day-long pub crawl. This led to Declan leaving no stone unturned in his search for the truth, especially when he found a gaping legal loophole in the drink-drive laws, which he was determined to close. 'In the Name of the Son' has many twists, turns and dramatic moments, including Declan's determination leading to a change in the law of consent for the provision of a blood sample by a suspect drink-driver becoming real on 11th July 2002 with the passing of "Duggan's Law". Since Kevin's death, Declan has also preserved the memory of his son through Kevin's love of golf by creating a unique Kevin Duggan Golf Academy, established in Stockwood Park, Luton. The Academy is a sports facility for underprivileged young players who might otherwise be unable to play. This book should prove to be a real source of inspiration for anyone who might find themselves in a similar situation following the tragic loss of a loved one.
