Looking at the rise of the Kray twins with an historian's eye, using a range of sources from memoirs, press reports and significantly, official files held at the National Archives and elsewhere, John Bennett takes a fresh approach to the Kray legend.... Along the way he dispels many of the myths, presents a wealth of previously unpublished information about some of the key players and major incidents in the story and independently reassesses the Kray twins' lives, activities and legacy. This is the often-told story of the Krays as you've never heard it told before.
“An essential addition to the Kray canon.”

“Incisive, revealing and impressively well researched: a must for all true crime readers."
