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.

Fantastic book

Best book I’ve listened too. Certainly sheds a new light on the films that were produced on this story.

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.
