Hardback. After more than 10yrs. silence, one of the key figures in the sensational Kray trial decided to tell his remarkable story. As a young East End tearaway, Chris Lambrianou was in a class of his own. Armed robbery, safe blowing, protection rackets, fraud, even, attempted murder...the big brash Cockney did the lot. But it was his younger brother Tony's fatal attraction to the notorious Kray twins that threw Chris in to the national spotlight and got him convicted for a murder he did not commit. One Saturday night, he was lured to a party that ended in the horrific murder of Jack 'The Hat' McVitie. What happened next not only led to the Krays' downfall, but eventually changed Lambrianou's life. In 1969, he was jailed for life, with a recommendation that he serve at least 15ys. In deep despair, he twice tried to kill himself, before having an amazing vision that changed him fundamentally, prompting him to become a Christian. Following his release from prison Chris became a Special Needs Officer at a rehabilitation centre. Illus. 343pp. 8vo. h/back. As New in dw.
