One of the mister bigs of British Crime,
This review is from: The Last Word: My Life as a Gangland Boss (Hardcover)
So many different things have been written about Eddie Richardson over the years, from being a thug who tortured innocent people to a criminal mastermind who ran one of the toughest firms ever seen in London. Finally Eddie has come out with his own account of his life, not necessarily the full truth but a very frank and detailed protrait of his life and what set him on the road to a life of crime. From his time growing up in London to his long stretches in prison, this book is a great read and seems a lot more creditable then his brother's, Charlie's book. I was shocked to read about the falling out between the two after finishing Eddie's book and the opinion he had of his brother. This is a gripping and often humerous book of a man who wielded power and was held in both respect and fear from those around him.
