Reg and Ron Kray have long held a legendary place in British criminal history. Here, Reg aims to set the record straight, tracing the notorious twins' career from their beginnings in the East End slums to their reign over an empire of 33 London clubs, "fraud firms," and other dubious interests. Unfortunately, Kray is too close to the events to tell an objective story or even to realize where American readers need more background information. While he waxes compassionate describing the state execution of a friend, his cool description of a murder he committed in cold blood shows that the only lives he values belong to Kray or his friends. Although this book might have value as a psychological study of a habitual criminal or may generate interest because of the recent movie The Krays , it is strictly for libraries with large true crime sections.
