4.0 out of 5 stars an insight to old London
well having read many books on the Krays I am happy to say that this book sets the story straight on a pair of evil villains and their Associets. One has to feel sorry for the people that suffered at the hands of the Krays and admiration for people like Lenny Hamilton for surviving. Both Lenny and Craig put the records straight, with fact and in a true cockney style. i...

well having read many books on the Krays I am happy to say that this book sets the story straight on a pair of evil villains and their Associets. One has to feel sorry for the people that suffered at the hands of the Krays and admiration for people like Lenny Hamilton for surviving. Both Lenny and Craig put the records straight, with fact and in a true cockney style. i suggest anyone out there who knows little about the Krays, read this first and likewise for those who know a lot because this will quell any rumours, disbelief and glory. a great book front to back. I thoroughly recommend this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars honest review, 17 Aug 2006
After reading the book i must admit i was impressed as it's a little different from the usual romantic notions of the notorious Kray Twins. One thing i would have like to have seen (maybe a future book?) is more of a detailed history of the victims. Consider that most books depict Cornell and Mcvitie as evil scum bags who deserve what they got etc but on who's say so are we meant to take this? Coupled the usual mugshots of both men etc. Little is really known about the true characters of both men as lies have no doubt been told to in previous literature to cast the krays in a good light and attempt to provide a justification for the murders. Who were these victims really, what do we really know abouth them in a biographical sense, i feel they deserve more than a few pages or chapter to have their story told. Anyone asked themselves the same questions? Yes i liked the book and recommend it to the reader, i hope the author(s) pick up on my suggestion and take it a stage further to print

5.0 out of 5 stars Hamilton is back., 8 Sep 2006
Lenny Hamilton is the only man who verbally castigated the twins while they were still alive and, as Cabell says, he's still doing it. This book is put together well. It's written by somebody who was there and edited - with additional information - by a journalist, biographer and historian. Lenny and Craig met while Craig wrote his last Kray book and a friendship was made. Thank god. We've now got the truth. The best Kray book ever written.
