Product Description

Book Description

An explosive account of life in the criminal underworld by one of Britain's most dangerous men

Product Description

'I am not a gangster,' I spat. 'I'm a businessman trying to make a hard-earned crust. Understood?'



I didn't give him time to reply. I took the barrel out of his mouth and smashed him in the face with the butt. His lip split, but he wasn't a dead man. He seemed to appreciate that his life had been spared.



He spluttered his thanks: 'Ok, you're not a gangster. You are not a gangster.'



This is the gripping true story of how one man ruled his north London manor with an iron fist - and a sawn-off shotgun called Kennedy. It's a shocking insight into a society where the rules are made by gangland leaders and if anybody dare break them, they have to deal with the consequences.



Bobby was sent to prison for the first time in 1967, aged 16, and over the next decade he established himself as a hardened criminal running protection rackets and robberies against a backdrop of all-out gang warfare, where doorstep slayings and bloody shoot-outs were common.



Eventually Bobby was sentenced to 12 years in Britain's most notorious prisons, along with the Krays, Charlie Richardson and the Yorkshire Ripper. Inside, he was introduced to the Open University and on his release he soon got down to business again. Only this time his efforts saw him go from custody of Her Majesty's Prison Service to meeting with the Queen herself...



I Am Not A Gangster is an explosive account of life in the criminal underworld by one of Britain's most dangerous men, but above all it's a remarkable tale of redemption with the biggest turnaround in gangland history.

I enjoyed Bobbys book very much. Well done to him on his work with offenders and rehabilitation. It just shows no one should ever be written off as a hopeless case. Respect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!!! 20 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was a fantastic read. The characters come to life and you imagine you are there amongst them. Exciting and funny in some places but sad in others. You feel all emotions when reading this book and it is a very powerful honest account of a difficult life but of someone who came through. There are probably more stories from Bobby that can be tapped into. Every Mother and Father from deprived backgrounds should heed the moral of this tale and tell it to their kids.Bobby is obviously now very passionate about making sure that people do not go the same route. Well done Bobby, you greatly deserve the OBE. We should listen to more people who have been there, rather than academia who think they know. This book would make a fantastic film. Check him out on the internet. Has not lost his roots.
