The Shadow I am the darkness that lies within. I take what I want, and that is your skin. I hunt and roam and hurt for a thrill. And if you´re not careful, I usually kill. I am alive in your head, like a nightmare you can´t face. And once you´re stuck there, your body is erased. I am a mixture of two things and not one. Shhhh, I am a secret, don´t tell. Because I´m the only one. Have you guessed what I am yet? Have you really thought things through? Because no one knows the true story. I doubt you ever will. Because before this story is over, I will probably have you killed. I am The Shadow.

In over forty years in medicine - seven of these as Master of the National Maternity Hospital - obstetrician Peter Boylan was at the births of more than 6,000 babies. He saw women and families at their most vulnerable, their most joyous, and sometimes their most heart-broken. In the Shadow of the Eighth is the story of how a young doctor without strong views on abortion became convinced that women should be trusted to make the right decisions for their lives - and how he then did everything in his power to bring about a situation where they could. More than that, it is an engaging account of working in one of medicine´s most satisfying specialities, a revealing behind-the-scenes insight into what it´s like trying to make change happen, and a fascinating portrait of a society in transition. Lively, gripping, sometimes enraging but always compassionate, Peter Boylan´s story is vital and encouraging reading for these turbulent times.
