Format: Paperback
Steve "Nipper" Ellis was a respected face in South Essex and whose courage was out of all proportion to his small stature. He stood up to TTR when others dared not.

I have read previous books by this author whom, in my opinion, is one of the best crime writers at the current time. I was therefore looking forward to reading this book and was not dissapointed.

A fantastic, shocking and at times humerous account of Nipper's life and experiences.

As usual, properly researched, fully substantiated,and intelligently written - a must read

This book is about the infamous Essex Boys firm that provided door security for clubs in Essex and more tragically they also provided the ecstacy tablet that would claim Leah Betts life. Within weeks of Leahs death the three most dangerous members of the firm would be dead, they were lured to a remote country lane in Rettendon and ambushed in their Range Rover and blasted to death with pump action shotguns.Steve 'Nipper' Ellis recounts his numerous run ins with the firm which saw him shoot Pat Tate out of fear for his own life,Tate along with Tony Tucker and Craig Rolfe were the three who died in probably the most ruthless gangland executions that ever took place in Britain, the book also questions whether the right men are in prison for the murders,this book is yet another which claims that Michael Steele and Jack Whomes are really innocent.All in all this book is a must for anyone interested in the Rettendon murders.

Great book. I've read a lot of books about the infamous "Rettendon Triple2 and this one is one of the best, both Nipper (Steven Ellis) and O'Mahoney (Bernard) grab your attention immediately, and you cannot put it down. The last part of the book goes on to mention the latest saga in the Essex underworld and a man who was shot dead in similar circumstances to Tucker, Tate and Rolfe. The guy's name was Dean Boshell a wannabe gangster, who ended up like his hero's - on a mortury slab!. I am currently reading The Essex Boys - Next generation (by O'Mahoney), which goes into more detail about this crime.
If you want to know about the Essex Boys then buy not only this book but, O'Mahoney's Essex Boys, Bonded by blood and the Essex Boys the next Generation. If your still interested buy Rise of the footsoldier by Carlton Leach and Bloggs 19 by supergrass Darren Nicholls, but O'Mahoney's books are the best. Rise of the Footsoldier is probably a better film than Bonded by Blood but, it's the other way round when it comes to the books.

Awesome Read.
