5.0 out of 5 stars East London Villains, 9 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: JUDAS PIG (Kindle Edition)
Horace Silver's real name is Jimmy Holmes. It surfaced in a recent court case when millionaire Davey Hunt, East London 'businessman, and scrap metal dealer with little visible source of wealth sued The Times for referring to him as a crime warlord.

He lost and the case once more illustrated the level of corruption in The Metropolitan Police.

Judas Pig describes the activities of an East London firm led by a vicious psychopath called Danny, whose activities supposedly are a fictionalised account of the Hunt Gang, Danny being Davey.

Other well known London villains such as Ronnie Knight appear in the story.

The gritty realistic style is very much like JJ Connely's Layer Cake, leading to suggestions that he ghost wrote the novel (memoir?) although that is mere speculation.

Famous villains, like famous pirates, are the unsuccessful ones so I guess we will never know whether Holmes was indeed Hunt's partner in the rise of the Hunt Gang but the novel is superb
