Shocking . . . Fascinating and slightly scary reading
An extraordinary book
Praise for GANGS
Fascinating ... Thompson has a keen eye for the whimsical side of orchestrated illegality
In the best tradition of the crime beat reporter, Thompson goes down the mean streets of the most insalubrious parts of Britain so we don't have to.
Detailed and thoroughly riveting ... always grimly honest and provides an intensely readable and vivid first-hand account of criminals' lives and the impact of their activities on society
