Format: Hardcover
The book takes you from their lives as children in London , through to their convictions for the crimes the where encarcerated for . It's not a book for those who don't appreciate the fact that you either flourish or flounder in a world of depravity and sink in the mire of poverty . You have to take into account that once you are held in high esteem in the underworld , you can not be taken for a fool , or be seen . Because if that happens ther will always be somebody to take your place . And personally that's what I think this book portrays , as well as the mental problems with Ronnie , and Reggie's fear of upsetting his sibling . Even though Reggie and Charlie always had the upper hand on Ronnie when it came to buisness accumen . If it hadn't of been for Ronnie's paranoia they could have been at liberty for far longer and have a tighter grip on racketering up to the present day . Who knows ? Well thats my review , this is a decent book and well worth a read . enjoy John Kerr

Interesting and insightful glance into the lives of Britains hardest and most terrifying criminals. A thrilling read , this book tellsthe story of the Krays from the inside. Who could have been better qualified to write about the Kray twins other than their brother Charlie?

If you have read the krays the final countdown by the same author then do yourself a favor and dont bother reading this book.
Its basicaly the same book going over the same ground i was rather disapointed that their wasnt anything new.
It was basicaly the same book renamed and re packaged.
Im giving it 4 stars as if you have not read the final countdown then its a very good book but being an avid reader of all things about the twins and their family i brought it and read it in a couple of days.

Fans of the krays all just people that have an interest in the family will agree that you do tend to see read the same stuff and stories about the twins over and over again but you hope to see something different or read a different take on something you might have not known before.

But frys book is a blatant lazy way of cashing in on the death of the last member of the family dying as far as im concerend.
There was nothing new from the last book the final countdown.
As ive said before this book doing the buisness is a juggled around repackaged krays the final countdown. so kray fans BEWARE!!!!!.....

This book opens one's eyes to the krays. For Charlie to spend seven years behind bars when he wasn't involved in hat macvittes killing but because he was a kray. Then age 70 to again go to jail very wrong.

I find books about the Krays endlessly fascinating if only because each author cannot possibly get at the whole truth. All the people being interviewed have things they also want to keep secret or put a personal slant on. The Kray twins are unique in being perhaps the only pair of identical twin villains who managed to get such a high profile combining celebrity status with charity work while murdering and robbing others. The book 'written' by themselves portrays them as 'diamond geezers' put down by the police taking 'diabolical liberties', This book is one of the best I think but I have no way of knowing if my impression is correct. I imagine that books will be written about the twins long after the current authors who actually knew them have departed for the bookshop in the sky.

The truth is twisted to make big brother Charlie appear a respected part of the family firm, in a way that's mildly pathetic and utterly unconvincing. Charlie's recollection of events differs from that of almost anyone else there. Not particularly well-written, with no revelations or insights that aren't available elsewhere. For die-hard enthusiasts only.
