Very sad to hear yesterday about the dying of Shane Finn, Shirley Finn’s youngest son, who I got to know at Casuarina Prison, and to whom Line of Sight is dedicated. Shane died too young, at 51. I got to spend some time with him just before his death, and we talked about many things, his life, his impending death, and the murder of his mother. It of course sticks in my throat that, bar one or two, the people responsible for Shirley’s murder are all still alive, while Shane is not. Shane was a real character, a talented writer and artist, and he will be missed.
