This review is from: Mr Blue: Memoirs of a Renegade (Hardcover)
No Beast So Fierce (filmed as the underrated Straight Time starring a never-better Dustin Hoffman) is one of the great crime novels of the last few decades and although, like Ed Bunker's other books, it's highly autobiographical in its portrayal of a con trying to go straight in a world that won't let him, this biography does more than just fill in the gaps Bunker's novels leave. By turns chilling and exhilarating, Mr Blue is better than any other criminal's autobiography I've read - and I've read a lot. If anything lets the book down it's that it could be twice as long and you'd still want more!
