Charlie Richardson, one of Britain's most notorious gangland bosses and rival to East End twins the Krays, sheds light on his extraordinary life story completed just weeks before his death in September 2012.
From the Back Cover
Notorious Charlie Richardson was the most feared gangster in 1960s London. Boss of the Richardson Gang and rival of the Krays, to cross him would result in brutal repercussions. Famously arrested on the day England won the World Cup in 1966, his trial heard he allegedly used iron bars, bolt cutters and electric shocks on his enemies.
The Last Gangster is Richardson’s frank account of his largely untold life story, written just before his death in September 2012. He shares the truth behind the rumours and tells of his feuds with the Krays for supremacy, undercover missions involving politicians, time banged up in prison and reveals shocking secrets about royalty, phone hacking, bent coppers and the infamous black box.
Straight up, shocking and downright gripping, this is the ultimate expose on this legendary gangster and his extraordinary life.

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.
