Tony Thompson, bestselling author of GANGS, returns to the killing streets and takes us to the heart of UK gang culture. Since the publication of Gangs five years ago, the landscape of British organised crime has changed beyond all recognition. Youth violence, the drug trade and rising levels of gun crime are rarely out of the news. The country also continues to experience an influx of powerful foreign criminal syndicates who are establishing operations here in order to take advantage of Britain's global connections. Beginning on the troubled streets of the inner cities, Gangland takes its readers on a journey up through the underworld hierarchy until it finally reaches the very highest levels, occupied by elusive and shadowy 'Mr. Big' characters. Written using a mix of personal experiences, undercover work, primary research and cutting edge investigation, Gangland sheds new light onto this highly secretive, often terrifying and utterly fascinating world.
