Softcover. For more than 100yrs. Glasgow has been a serious contender in the major league of big-city crime. Crime bosses, such as Walter Noval and Arthur Thompson, ruled the city's underworld with the help of scores of hard men who never flinched at doing their bidding. With their feuds, open warfare on the streets and razor slashings, notorious gangs like the Penny Mob, the Cheeky Forty and the Cumble terrorised the city, forcing the authorities to crack down as never before. And even in the 21st century, as the gleaming new Glasgow polishes its reputation for sophistication, culture and cutting-edge architecture, blood still gets spilled on the streets and the crime bosses continue to prosper. This book is a compelling journey through the history of crime, criminals and crime fighting in a city where the illicit is never far away. Illus. 293pp. trade size p/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Review copy with loosely inserted slip. F.
