Hardback. Foreword by Frankie Fraser. Drawing on exclusive final interviews with Frank, and with unprecedented access to his closest relatives, the book follows his rise from a small kid stealing to put food on the table, to a feared and respected West End crime lord and head of a legendary gangland family. It includes the story of Frank's beloved sister, Eva, who was a top-class West End shoplifter, and his sons David and Patrick, who reveal in shocking detail the full extent of the family's network and the influences that shaped them. With sawn-off shotguns as toys, the Kray twins as family friends and a mother who urged them as teenagers to 'get out of bed and rob a bleedin' bank', it is little wonder that the Fraser boys were heavily involved in organised crime by the time they were in their twenties. Packed with new information, and featuring some of the most famous names in the London underworld, this is a fascinating slice of gangland history seen through the eyes of Frank Fraser and his two renegade sons. Illus. in colour and b/w, with Epilogue, Glossary and Index. 369pp. lge. 8vo. h/back. As New in dw. A fairly heavy book which may require additional postage if shipped overseas.
