Book Description

The final confessions of the senior Kray brother. Only one man knew everything about Ronnie and Reggie Kray and that was their brother Charlie. Until now nobody has ever revealed the truth about the Firm.• Gossip and rumor have been rife, fact has blended into fiction and the unwritten law of the street meant that the real story was buried. But before his death, the eldest Kray brother, Charlie, decided to set the record straight once and for all. Revealing everything to Colin Fry, his co-author, he finally told his incredible story. By the man who knew them best, this is the ultimate history of the twins who ruled the East End with their peculiar blend of seductive glamour and terrifying violence.

The book takes you from their lives as children in London , through to their convictions for the crimes the where encarcerated for . It's not a book for those who don't appreciate the fact that you either flourish or flounder in a world of depravity and sink in the mire of poverty . You have to take into account that once you are held in high esteem in the underworld , you can not be taken for a fool , or be seen . Because if that happens ther will always be somebody to take your place . And personally that's what I think this book portrays , as well as the mental problems with Ronnie , and Reggie's fear of upsetting his sibling . Even though Reggie and Charlie always had the upper hand on Ronnie when it came to buisness accumen . If it hadn't of been for Ronnie's paranoia they could have been at liberty for far longer and have a tighter grip on racketering up to the present day . Who knows ? Well thats my review , this is a decent book and well worth a read . enjoy John Kerr

Interesting and insightful glance into the lives of Britains hardest and most terrifying criminals. A thrilling read , this book tellsthe story of the Krays from the inside. Who could have been better qualified to write about the Kray twins other than their brother Charlie?

5.0 out of 5 stars If you are into gangster books.... read this. 1 Sept. 1999
By A Customer
A complete un-biased summary of life in the firm from Charlie Kray. Explains incredible links between the American Mafia and major world events which climaxes with a FULL EXPLANATION OF THE ASSASINATION OF JOHN F KENNEDY. Provides incredible insight into the London Underworld and the way things worked in the East End. Read It.

4.0 out of 5 stars LAZY CASHING IN ON THE DEATH OF THE LEGENDS 1 April 2008
If you have read the krays the final countdown by the same author then do yourself a favor and dont bother reading this book.
Its basicaly the same book going over the same ground i was rather disapointed that their wasnt anything new.
It was basicaly the same book renamed and re packaged.
Im giving it 4 stars as if you have not read the final countdown then its a very good book but being an avid reader of all things about the twins and their family i brought it and read it in a couple of days.

Fans of the krays all just people that have an interest in the family will agree that you do tend to see read the same stuff and stories about the twins over and over again but you hope to see something different or read a different take on something you might have not known before.

But frys book is a blatant lazy way of cashing in on the death of the last member of the family dying as far as im concerend.
There was nothing new from the last book the final countdown.
As ive said before this book doing the buisness is a juggled around repackaged krays the final countdown. so kray fans BEWARE!!!!!.....

As with all gangster books you don't quite know what's fact and fiction! Definitely some interesting stories and goings on.... but, I get the impression that the twins didn't think Charlie had the tools to go with them up the ladder - he was the older brother entertaining read though.
