This book does reflect the route that Vic and his mates took although probably more by default than a chosen career path. There are many of this type of book around and this is one of the better ones although you have to wonder about the 'shock factor' that gets added to all of them in order to sell.
Still an interesting read if your from Londons East end, but a great shame that honest people such as Policemen and Bank clerks (love em or hate em) have their lives so pathetically considered by what seems an intelligent man.
After a long criminal career, he has apparently gone "straight", although that seemingly means debt collecting and frightening off minor thieves and vandals from places like secondhand car dealerships....hm...
The sad thing is that society has still not found a way to absorb the energies and aggressions of such an author. Not a book easily forgotten, once read.
