Paperback. Reg Kray was sentenced, together with his brother Ron, to serve 'a minimum' of 30-yrs in jail. Ron passed away in 1995. After spending over half his life in the prison system, Reg was finally released on compassionate grounds, battling life-threatening cancer, from which he died. Many have claimed a stake in the Kray legend, but only Reg Kray could write of his own life with authority. This is Reg Kray of 2000 not the 1960s. We see the anguish of the prison system, but also Reg's remarkable influence on many fellow inmates, and how he handled enforced relationships with characters who ranged from Lennie Mclean to the Great Train Robbers, John McVicar to the Yorkshire Ripper, Frankie Fraser to Ian Brady - with frank reflections on the penalties of crime. Written in prison while awaiting parole, Reg speaks for the first time in his own words of his marriage to Roberta, and of his relations with his brothers Ron and Charlie. Illus., A Final Note, Epilogue, Appendix + Index. 322pp.mass market p/back. V.v. lightly browned edges o/w Nr. F. with no creasing to covers.
