Hardback. David Teale: groomed by the twins, controlled by threats, falsely imprisoned by the State for his 'own protection' as younger brother of Kray-informer Bobby. Turns out that's only half the story. David first met the Krays when he was seventeen years old. He was drawn into London's underworld, and became Ronnie's reluctant foot soldier, driver, errand boy. He was close to murder, and witnessed menaces and the increasingly psychotic behaviour of the most feared men in gangster land. Unbeknown to David, his brother Bobby had bravely turned informer at great risk to his own safety and that of his brothers. That had its own consequences. But why, when the police were being furnished with eye-witness statements, from an impeccable source, were they seemingly incapable of bringing the twins to justice? The Krays were untouchable. After tireless research through newly released documents in the National Archives, and piecing previously classified information together with his own first-hand knowledge of the time, David Teale uncovers the shocking new truth, revealed in this book for the first time. David's story re-writes history. Illus., Short Glossary, Epilogue, Timeline, Bibliog. and Index. 356pp. 8vo. h/back. As New in dw.
