I bought this as the Face wasn't a bad read.This however is a book of 2 halves,not to mention a load of spelling mistakes. The first half dealing with gangsters isn't bad,but when he tries to write about Irish terrorism,his prejudices come thru.
He portrays a loyalist not as a sectarian gangster,but as a decent bloke who 'has to fight for his freedom on a daily basis',good grief.Republicans do deals with Al-queda and run paedophile rings,surprised he didn't give them horns n pointy tails. He may know about London gangsters but fails miserably on Irish politics and accents.
