The Profession Of Violence, The Rise And Fall Of The Kray Twins. John Pearson
The classic, bestselling account of the infamous Kray twins, now a major film, LEGEND, starring Tom Hardy.
Reggie and Ronald Kray ruled London's gangland during the 1960s. Building an empire of organised crime such as nobody has done before or since. John Pearson explores the relationship that bound the twins together, and charts their career to their downfall and imprisonment for life in 1969.
Now expanded to include further extraordinary revelations, including the unusual alliance between the Kray twins and Lord Boothby – the Tory peer who won £40,000 in a libel settlement when he denied allegation of his association with the Krays – The Profession of Violence is a truly classic work.
