Fat Freddie Summary

Fat Freddie: A gangster's life - the bloody career of Freddie Thompson by Stephen Breen


'Explosive' Irish Sunday Mirror

'A fascinating read' Sean O'Rourke, Today with Sean O'Rourke, RTE

'Fat' Freddie Thompson first appeared in court in 1997. He was seventeen and already aspiring to be a major crime boss. Over the next twenty years his criminal career would be marked by mayhem, brutality and murder.

In 2000 a row over a failed drugs deal ignited a murderous feud in Dublin's south inner city. The first victim of the Crumlin-Drimnagh feud was a childhood friend of Thompson's. He vowed revenge and led his Crumlin crew in a series of tit-for-tat killings. Sixteen young men would lose their lives over the next 12 years.

Meanwhile, another childhood friend, Daniel Kinahan, had become a senior figure in his father Christy Kinahan's international crime cartel. Working with the Kinahan Cartel Thompson launched himself as a drugs dealer in Dublin.

So when an even deadlier feud broke out in 2016 - this time between the powerful Kinahans and veteran Dublin criminal, Gerry 'The Monk ' Hutch - Thompson was one of their staunchest allies and prepared to get his hands dirty. But Thompson's loyalty would be his undoing. In August 2018 he was convicted of murder and jailed.

Fat Freddie is a gripping account of the rise and fall of Freddie Thompson. Award-winning crime journalist, Stephen Breen, co-author of the No 1 bestselling The Cartel, has written the definitive portrait of a notorious Dublin gangster, a shocking story of double-crossing, vengeance and murder.
