Freddie Foreman: The Godfather of British Crime by Freddie Foreman
3 of 4 people found the following review helpful
I found it a bit difficult to finish and like this book, or rather its author and principal character. Goes on about honour in the underworld, but it becomes clear that such has to suit him and his mates of the moment. They're also allowed to dish out summary "justice" whenever it suits them, but its always "out of order" if it comes back on them. Woth reading though, for reasons of insight into that world

A good chronological account of Mr. Noyes's life, good detail and gives a welcome insight. The author doesn't over-glamourise, and a look into the now-extinct traditional London Gangster world is also given.
A Swim-on Part in the Goldfish Bowl by Carol Thatcher
3.0 out of 5 stars Misses the mark a bit, 6 May 2013
I think a previous reviewer commented that this book does not enable one to have any real insights into the life of Carol Thatcher. I would agree, but for historians it's an o.k. read.
