I have read previous books by this author whom, in my opinion, is one of the best crime writers at the current time. I was therefore looking forward to reading this book and was not dissapointed.
A fantastic, shocking and at times humerous account of Nipper's life and experiences.
As usual, properly researched, fully substantiated,and intelligently written - a must read
Check out Bernard O'Mahoney's website
If you want to know about the Essex Boys then buy not only this book but, O'Mahoney's Essex Boys, Bonded by blood and the Essex Boys the next Generation. If your still interested buy Rise of the footsoldier by Carlton Leach and Bloggs 19 by supergrass Darren Nicholls, but O'Mahoney's books are the best. Rise of the Footsoldier is probably a better film than Bonded by Blood but, it's the other way round when it comes to the books.
Another publicity stunt by Bernard O'Mahoney.
One point that Ellis unwittingly makes is how difficult it is to escape the world you are born into, and how downright impossible it is for a one-time crook to go straight, not least because former cronies and agents of the state alike have every incentive to keep the refusnik in the straightjacket of his former identity.
I would certainly read more by Steve Ellis, not only because he writes from bitter experience and from the heart, but because, despite a lack of formal education, the man can write most investigative journalists under the table.
