Ron and Reg Kray, the most notorious and vicious gangsters Britain has ever produced, used everything and everyone to get what they wanted—and if anyone got in their way, then they would get in his. That meant getting rid of the competition. Violence was a part of their trade—both in and out of the boxing ring. They used it, or the threat of it, throughout their lives. This book unravels the complex lives of the three Kray brothers, the true extent of their crimes, the duplicitous dealings of Ron and Reg even from behind prison bars. It looks at why Charlie Kray turned to drugs as his only salvation and examines the reasons why some have found the Krays fatally attractive. The Krays: A Violent Business strips away the myths that have grown up around the brothers, going behind the scenes to lay bare the tactics the twins used to ensure they succeeded against all the odds. Painting a vivid picture of the brothers' world, it exposes how they rose to the top of the criminal tree—how they became the biggest, the best, and the most notorious criminals of all time.

Book Description Transworld Publishers Ltd, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Twins Ron and Reg Kray were without doubt the most powerful, violent and deadly gangsters that London has ever known. They ran protection rackets, clubs and casinos, as well as fraudulent 'long firms'. They blackmailed, intimidated and killed - for many years with impunity thanks to their powerful cronies in the Establishment. Working with all five main Mafia families in New York, they were expanding their business worldwide when they were imprisoned for murder in 1968. Featuring revealing new material, The Krays: A Violent Business is the story of their lives - and of the secrets and scandals the British government still doesn't want you to know about.
