THE INSIDE TRACK ON ONE OF BRITAIN'S MOST NOTORIOUS GANGSTERS --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Back Cover
My dad stopped me at the top of the stairs, 'What are you doing? You've got a fight tomorrow!'
'But I can earn more money like this.'
'Look son, you've got to make a decision. What do you want to be? A thief of a fighter?'
'Dad, I think I want to be a thief.'
The Karys, the Richardsons and men like Buster Edwards or Freddie Foreman may be better known, but by the end of the sixties they were either in prison or living in enforced exile. Joey Pyle was (and continues to be) ever bit as notorious, feared and respected.
His broad range of criminal contacts and associates ensured he was either involved in or very much aware of every major criminal escapade that took place. From the murder of Jack the hat by the Kray twins to the Great Train Robbery, from the fatal shooting at the Pen Club to the American Mafia's attempts to penetrate London's casino scene, Pylo has seen it all. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
