Gangland UK Summary

Gangland UK by Christopher Berry-Dee

It was the most brutal killing crusade Nottingham has ever seen. Two cruel brothers and their henchmen synonymous with robbery, torture, bribery and corruption, presided over a murderous reign so brutal that Nottingham was pushed up to fourth position in the UK's gun crime league. David and Colin Gunn were the modern-day Krays, with an evil multimillion-pound crime empire founded on fear and corruption. Their shocking story is among a dozen others of thugs and mobsters explored in this chilling book.Having delved into the heads of many of the world's most notorious murderers and published his gripping findings in the bestselling "Talking with Serial Killers", renowned crime expert Christopher Berry-Dee now turns his attention to the machinations of the gangster's mind, looking at the unique reality of their lives and documenting the extent of their brutishness and cruelty.From Tam McGraw - one of Scotland's most wealthy and infamous gangsters - to 'Public Enemy Number 1' Kenny Noye, Britain's ultimate crime boss; from the ruthless, money-laundering Adams Family to Manchester's Desmond Noonan and his feared brothers, the individuals in this book are of a mixed breed. All of them, however, are united in their depravity: all are hardened crooks, oft-times violent, psychopathic individuals; self-serving people without regard for lawful morality, undeserving of sympathy, whose circumstances and personalities have set them on the path to destruction.While you may be able to breathe a sigh of relief that the characters in this book have long since been banished from the streets they so viciously terrorised, you will also get a taste of the dangers still out there. A must for any fan of true crime writing, Gangland UK is the startling and fascinating portrait of day-to-day life in Britain for thousands of people you would rather - but won't be able to - forget.
