Publisher's Summary

On December 6, 1995, three key members of the infamous Essex Boys gang were lured to a deserted farm track on the pretense of planning a robbery. As the trio sat in their Range Rover, two gunmen approached the open rear door of the vehicle. Moments later, the first shots rang out signaling the start of a swift, yet bloody massacre. When the weapons fell silent, the three men lay dead.

Before the gun smoke had cleared, rumors laced with innuendo and lies had begun circulating throughout the Essex underworld and beyond. Who really killed Tony Tucker, Pat Tate and Craig Rolfe soon became the greatest mystery in British criminal history.

Despite countless books, films, and documentaries pointing accusing fingers at an array of suspects, no clear cut version of events backed by hard evidence has emerged.

That is until now. Within this audio, former key member of the Essex Boys gang Bernard O'Mahoney breaks his silence. He is the man who knows who killed who, why, how, and when. This is his confession. This is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth about the Essex Boys murders and so much more.

    Story
    "Aced It!"

    Never really knew what lay behind the headlines, but this is a proper look into the sordid world of low-level drug importation and dealing. Amazing, that they got away with it for so long...but it was always gonna end in tears. TBH, I enjoyed it much more than I thought I was going to.

    Story
    "The final Final Word"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely. Great story telling and depth of characters. In honesty, I haven't listened to a huge amount of audiobooks but this whetted my appetite for the medium and the genre.


    What other book might you compare Essex Boys: The Final Word to, and why?

    I don't really know...but, I may give 'Abide With Me' a go...seems to have an East End Crime theme running through it, which I really enjoy.


    What does Karl Jenkinson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Lifted it off the page for me.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Certainly, made me laugh in places...sad in others.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't really recommend it highly enough...Top Drawer!

    Story
    "Poor standard of reading later in book"

    Around chapter 20 the narrator starts to slow down. You hear pages turn. He even clears his throat. Was a great story but let down and made it overall disappointing

    Story
    "Amateur"

    I've had loads of books from audible but this has got to be one of the most amateurish books of them all!!! You can actually hear the guy turning the pages, long pauses between chapters,throat clearing and coughing. All very off putting,the story's not bad though.

    Story
    "Good but flawed"

    A good story which keeps you interested. Its well read apart from the fact the reader falters a few times and you can hear him struggle to find his place which seems a bit amateurish. There are also a few points where it seems to stop mid -sentence without explanation. Overall I'd recommend but they could do with ironing out these errors.
