There is no honour amongst thieves.
on 20 January 2006
I had a fasination with this book as my family, on my granmothers side, are in it. So it was a revelation to read what they were up to, I always thought they were really nice and I always liked going to see them.
The book however, begins in the usual way, boy rises above his hard child hood and uses what ever he has to rise abive the rest, even if that is with violence. Where this book got really intereseting was when he gets to the top, what he does to stay there.
Couldn't put the book down. Very easy to read, clear and to the point. Refers to Paul Ferris and so led me to buy the Ferris Conspiracy, which is another good read but similar source material.
Recommend this book. Pulls no punches, tells it how it was and allows you to make your own judgements to the type of people they were.
