Murder without Conviction: Inside the World of the Krays by John Dickson
The Kray twins were a formidable criminal partnership. Shrewd, quick-witted, and ruthless, their reputation spread far beyond the mean streets of their territory of Whitechapel and Bethnal Green. John Dickson arrived in London from Edinburgh in 1964, looking for wrok...and adventure. He soon found it in the pubs and card clubs of the East End, where he met and got to know the twins and the members of the 'firm'. He was, for many years, a close and trusted henchman of the Krays, and was the man who drove Ronnie to the Blind Beggar pub the night that George Cornell was shot. In this explosive book, Dickson tells the inside story of Ronnie and Reggie's gangland underworld. He recounts the increasingly erratic and senselessly violent behaviour of the twins, and their final arrest, which came at a time when they had thought they were invincible.
