James 'Jimmy Two Guns' McIntyre was Glasgow's go-to gangland lawyer and consigliere to one of Scotland's foremost crime families. His maverick approach to the law and a client list that included some of the most feared gangland figures of the time - including the McGoverns and Paul Ferris - ensured that he was always in demand but under the constant scrutiny of the authorities.

Now Jimmy Two Guns recounts the cases he handled, the strokes he pulled, plus his arrests, a high-speed car chase with the drug squad, his time in 'the cooler' for allegedly attempting to murder a detective inspector, a million-pound hijacking and much more. He tells how he bounced back after being the target of a near fatal underworld hit, before being arrested by an armed response unit for possession of two illegal guns.

Described by Paul Ferris as 'funny, flamboyant, and fearless' and 'razor sharp, with balls of steel', James McIntyre has had an extraordinary life, eventually reinventing himself as a top TV script writer. But for Jimmy Two Guns, the truth has always been stranger than fiction.

 James McIntyre's total disregard for authority was clear by the time he started school and continued throughout his education, culminating in him becoming the most notorious criminal lawyer north of the border. Consigliere to 'The McGovernment', Glasgow's most infamous crime family, and close friend of feared gangland enforcer Paul Ferris, James used his legal practice to fight the forces of the Crown for all kinds of clients and for himself. His philosophy, paradoxical to some, has always been, 'Never forget your friends, never flip, keep the Faith'. Finally, imprisoned for firearms offences he thanks God for His protection. Without Him, he wouldn't be alive.
