About the Author
Charlie Richardson was born in Camberwell, South-East London, in 1934. He turned to a life of crime at a young age, forming the Richardson gang along with his brother Eddie. Charlie invested in scrap metal, whilst Eddie operated fruit machines. In July 1966 police arrested members of the Richardson gang following a series of raids in south London. In April 1967 Charlie was found guilty of fraud, extortion, assault and grievous bodily harm and sentenced to 25 years in prison. Charlie died from blood poisoning aged 78 in September 2012.

The main problem with the book though is not the writing itself, rather it is the subject matter; the book is called, ‘The Last Gangster-My Final Confession.’ Yet Richardson rarely addresses any of the crimes he was involved in apart from those of a very ‘petty’ nature and anything more serious as hearsay or lies. Rather than portraying himself as a criminal he chose to prefer an image of a slightly dodgy businessman / Harry Palmer spy figure. If you are hoping to find any revelations regarding Charlie Richardson’s history in London’s underworld you will be very disappointed.
