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.

A good story, but.....

I really enjoyed this book and many others on the subject, but, I wouod approach this book with an air of caution.
The author approaches the story fro his view point obviously but there are other books written (for example by Carlton Leach) that tell a very different story and that Bernard was considerably more guilty than he let's on. Simple fact is we will never know the full truth of that night and that's a shame for the families left behind but still, this book is a very entertaining and engaging story. The performance of the characters is superb I would add.

Great Insight into the Essex underword.

Really interesting book, with great recollection to detail of events at the time. I will definitely listen again at some point. Coming from the East End/Essex, I felt I could relate to certain parts of the book as I know the local areas and landmarks/pubs mentioned. Real interesting listen to a dark era in the Essex underworld. If this sort of thing is of general interest to you, you will not be dissapointed.

Finally The Truth

I’d only heard of the movie of the same title but decided to listen to this audiobook and learn the truth before watching the movie.

Mr O’Mahoney tells it like it was, no holds barred.

The 3 men who got killed deserved it and only family would miss them, listen and you’ll find out why !

Highly recommend this if you’ve heard about the murders or seen the movie.
