Mad Frank Summary

Mad Frank: Memoirs of a Life of Crime by Frank Fraser

MAD FRANK is Frankie Fraser's own extraordinary story - the truth about the legendary villain who for fifty years was a key figure in Britain's underworld. A peer of the Krays and the Richardsons, arguably as influential and certainly as dangerous, Fraser has served over 40 years in prisons and mental institutions for his various crimes.

MAD FRANK - A man who has been at the cutting edge of crime in this country, and who took the time to sharpen it while he was there.

Mad Frank Reviews

The British have a soft spot for villains, especially the criminally bewildered, and Mad Frank, now in his 70s, has become part of the heritage trail ... A pivotal figure in any history of England's gangland ... a harrowing book * John McVicar, SUNDAY TIMES *
There is a mesmeric quality to the sheer accumulation of infamous names dropped by Fraser, coupled, often, with the injuries they sustained after coming to his attention ... His memory for details is clearly undiminished - not for those of a delicate disposition ... chillingly unrepentant story * THE TIMES *
Fascinating ... a chilling account of a truly dangerous person * DAILY EXPRESS *
An amazing account of the workings of criminal families in Britain * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH *
One of the most feared villains in London's underworld ... Actors cast as villains would do well to study on Mad Frankie * TIME OUT *
Colourful ... chilling * SUNDAY EXPRESS *
Evokes a vanished era * INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY *
I read it from cover to cover in two days, hypnotised by the larger- than-life characters * CAMBRIDGE EVENING NEWS *
un-put-downable. * BIRMINGHAM SUNDAY MERCURY *
Fascinating ... reads like a Who's Who of the British criminal class * COVENTRY EVENING TELEGRAPH *
Pulls no punches ... compelling reading * KENT TODAY *
The full, violent story. Read it if you have the stomach. * GLASGOW EVENING TIMES *
Macabre, malignant and malevolent, Mad Frank is an incredible phenomenon ... fascinating * SCALLYWAG *
Horrific account of his life and crimes * SOUTH WALES ECHO *
Vivid and brutally honest account of a life revolving around crime * BOLTON EVENING NEWS *
In this compelling memoir Fraser recounts his past in the gangs, the killings, the revenge and the dealing with notorious names such as the Krays and the Richardsons * NEWTOWNARDS CHRONICLE *
