Publisher's Summary

Heroes or villains? You decide....

In the 1960s, London’s gangland was ruled by two men: Reggie and Ronnie Kray. Building an empire of crime by intimidation, extortion, and terror on a scale never seen before or since, they feted stars of stage and screen, sportsmen, and even politicians to gain the respectability they craved.

On the March 17, 1995, Ronnie Kray died suddenly of a heart attack while serving a life sentence for murder. His funeral was watched by over 50,000 people. Five years later, Reggie Kray died of cancer, thus closing a particularly dark chapter in the history of London's underworld.

Read by acclaimed actor Martin Shaw, this is the true story of their rise and fall.

    Story
    "good for the early years BUT the later years ....!"

    i was really looking forward to this book but i was terribly disappointed.
    the book spent a lot of time on the early years, especially on their father's life and his 'activities' in crime.
    the latter years of the kray twins seemed to be sketched over somewhat to me.
    i would have liked a larger percentage of the book put onto this era of their lives.
    i shall be exchanging this book for one i really want to keep in my library and read over and over again. i'm afraid this one doesn't do it for me.
