The classic, bestselling account of the infamous Kray twins which will be brought to the main screen this autumn as Legend, a film directed by Academy Award winner Brian Helgeland and starring Tom Hardy.

Reggie and Ronnie Kray ruled London’s gangland during the 60s with a ruthlessness and viciousness that shocks even now. Building an empire of organised crime that has never been matched, the brothers swindled, extorted and terrorised – while enjoying a glittering celebrity status at the heart of the swinging 60s scene, until their downfall and imprisonment for life.
