    Description

    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.

    Very interesting

    Enjoyed the back story of where the twins came from and about life during mid-century England

    only issue was with the performer was the constant swallowing/spit / mouth noises. ..can't these be edited out? His overall reading was great and all the different accents were wonderful

    A Gripping Crime Story - Perfectly Read

    I have always been fascinated by the Kray Bothers and this book provides a vivid , compelling and well-researched look at their lives and their crimes.. Martin Shaw reading is forceful and witty bu not obtrusive. A real pro, he dies a great Cockney accent.
