Product description


"'Joe was not a gang leader; he was a boxer who used his physical size, pugilistic skills and ease with violence to make his living. When engaged in bank robbery he was so physically threatening he hardly needed a gun. His penchant for violence and crime was such he was one of the youngest inmates in Dartmoor prison. I am not romantic about criminals. They are not usually working class Robin Hoods as some reporters would have you believe. Many I have encountered are clearly evil, psychopaths and inveterate liars. I have no doubt that in his heyday that Joe Cannon was capable of great violence and I do not see him as a hero. But he was there. He can speak as a participant and eyewitness to a historic period of London crime.' From the introduction to Loose Cannon, by Paul Lashmar."

About the Author

From the mean streets of Notting Dale in the 1940s & 1950s, through the Kray's London of the 1960s to the 'supergrass' 1970s, Joe Cannon was a player throughout, as well as being a sharp-eyed observer. Loose Cannon is marvellously written and disarmingly honest.
