Summary

Paul Ferris was one of Britain's most feared gangsters for 25 years. Now Ferris reveals for the first time the real inside story of the villains he met and worked with, the common thugs, and big-time players that surrounded him, and the world of violence and fear he lived in every day of his life.

awful book....not worth the reading

It's all he said ....rumours??? The part about Twechar is absolute bull.....first Twechar is a village,and none of the shopkeepers were horrible to their customers....the village was full of big burly miners ,and the village sticks together ...and would have ran him out !!!
This is full of inaccuracies.....fairytales....all myths of ferris' making !!!!!

amazing

i felt as if i was part of the family. i loved the uniqueness of the individuals reasons for being part of the scene. yes some parts of the story was harsh but each person took ownership of their actions. perhaps more honest than joe bloggs
