Heroes or villains? You decide....

In the 1960s, London's gangland was ruled by two men: Reggie and Ronnie Kray. Building an empire of crime by intimidation, extortion, and terror on a scale never seen before or since, they feted stars of stage and screen, sportsmen, and even politicians to gain the respectability they craved.

On the March 17, 1995, Ronnie Kray died suddenly of a heart attack while serving a life sentence for murder. His funeral was watched by over 50,000 people. Five years later, Reggie Kray died of cancer, thus closing a particularly dark chapter in the history of London's underworld.

Read by acclaimed actor Martin Shaw, this is the true story of their rise and fall.

    " I read this book years ago. It is probably the best book about the Kray Twins leading up to their imprisonment and one of the best true crime books. "

    " Great boigraphy not a tabloid true crime but good journalism. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Larry Schwartz | 8/26/2012

    " These guys were some nasty customers. I read it because of the "Whitechapel" series on BBC America. "

    " Quite well written book for a true crime book - which are usually badly constructed. Insider view to the rise and fall of the Kray twins and the havoc wreacked on London during the 1950s and 1960s. Highly recommended. "
