From the Back Cover:

Reggie and Ronald Kray ruled London's gangland during the 1960s with a ruthlessness and viciousness that shocks even now. Building an empire of organised crime such as nobody has done before or since, the brothers swindled, intimidated, terrorised, extorted and brutally murdered. John Pearson explores the strange relationship that bound the twins together, and charts their gruesome career to their downfall and imprisonment for life in 1969.

Now expanded to include further extraordinary revelations, including the unusual alliance between the Kray twins and Lord Boothby – the Tory peer who won £40,000 in a libel settlement when he denied allegation of his association with the Krays -'Profession of Violence 'is a truly classic work.

'The most famous biography of criminal life to have been published in Britain… it has become something of a cult amongst the young'
TIME OUT

DAILY EXPRESS

DAILY TELEGRAPH

'The biography is brave and useful; well-written, it's an exciting read'
THE TIMES

NEW STATESMAN
