Hardback. 1st edn. SIGNED BY BOTH AUTHORS. From Soho to Southwark, Mayfair to Maida Vale and Clapton to Clapham, Frankie Fraser shows us where he and his friends fought, robbed and sometimes killed. In this survey of the city's sins, Frank recalls crimes - both notorious and previously unheard of - in the London of Frank's childhood and of today. He takes the reader into the clubs and pubs where thousands of pounds changed hands nightly in crooked card games, into the brothels where the girls worked for hundreds of pounds and on to the streets where they charged only shillings. He tells us of ther life in poverty between the wars, where the cuttings and the beatings took place, how the robberies were planned, how friends were crossed and double-crossed and how they lived and died at the hands of others - or the hangman. Illus., Bibliog. and Index. 216pp. 8vo. h/back. PRESENTATION COPY INSC. AND FLAT SIGNED BY FRANKIE FRASER AND JAMES MORTON plus tipped-in label SIGNED BY JAMES MORTON. F. in Nr. F. dw.
