About the Author

Caroline Wheeler is political editor of The Sunday Times. As a lobby journalist she has an insider's knowledge of Westminster and Whitehall. Caroline has reported on the contaminated blood scandal for over 20 years and her work has been credited by politicians, including the former health secretary Andy Burnham, with helping to bring about the Infected Blood Inquiry.


This book should rock Whitehall to its foundations. It shows it was complicit in a criminal cover-up on an industrial scale lasting five decades. It should prompt major changes to the way Britain is run - starting with a duty of candour on all public servants.
*Andy Burnham, Mayor of Great Manchester*

This is crusading journalism at its best. Caroline Wheeler, a rookie reporter in Birmingham, hearing that contaminated blood transfusions had given hepatitis and HIV to a haemophiliac began to campaign for justice and has continued today as Political Editor of The Sunday Times. This book chronicles the long campaign, the denials and obstruction and why the Infected Blood Inquiry will soon bring some comfort to sufferers and their families.
*Lord Owen*

This is the definitive analysis of the worst health scandal in British history. The terrifying lengths that the state went to to hide this outrage should chill us all. Wheeler's compassion in her approach to the horror she uncovered will stay with me forever.
*Professor Lucy Easthope, author of When the Dust Settles*

Caroline shines a fierce light on the darkest of episodes. This is an important account based on years of meticulous investigation. It exposes the shame of how some of the most vulnerable were failed - and reveals the long fight to give a voice to those whose pain was silenced.
*Laura Kuenssberg*

Caroline has been so supportive to the victims and survivors of the NHS contaminated blood scandal. She has been an integral part of our long fight for justice and enabled people like me to speak out with confidence, when there was little confidence before
*Ade Goodyear, former pupil at Treloar School*

A gripping narrative, strengthened by Wheeler's longstanding connection to the story
*Financial Times*

Moving, angering
