Review:

'A full, judicious and endlessly entertaining biography --The Sunday Times

'Reading this book is like sitting in the snug of one of Soho's old hostelries and listening to the tales of an old inhabitant...rattling good read.' --BBC History

'This hard-hitting, at times terrifying book for lovers of London, history and the human psyche portrays the area's myriad nature so vividly that going for that drink in Soho will never seem quite the same again.' --Irish World
