‘A fascinating look behind closed lock-up doors’ Evening Standard East End Gangland is a true crime classic, now updated and expanded. Bestselling author James Morton tracks the changing face of the East End from the 1870s to now, through opium dens and racecourse gangs, crime on the docks and organised prostitution to the major players of today.
The East End has always held a malign fascination for the general public. East End Gangland looks at this phenomenon from the days of the unsolved murders committed by Jack the Ripper to the 1960s when the Kray Twins held the reins of the Underworld, to the present and how the structure of crimes and criminal gangs has changed.
