Thought i would start a thread on this as i am a little bored at work and dont intend on doing any actual work lol.

I have been into true crime books for most of my reading life. i dont think the machine gunners quite fits that genre but it is nearly there and it was the first book i really remember getting into.

since then i have read loads of true crime some i loved some i didnt.

anyway the reason it is at the forfront of my mind is that yesterday i paid £75 for a rare true crime book about the krays written by leslie payne. will i regert it? who knows, certainly when the wife sees the credit card bill lol

not sure what to discuss further than that but please recomend any good ones to me :)

Also if there is any good cross over books into the ficiton genre written like they are real then i may have a rean of them. i read one like that by ronnie knight and loved it.

:)

You will get some rep for that :thumbsup: i will think about that.


I just read a book that seems to be mentioned in most UK crime books Billy Hill who was the boss of london apprentley before the Krays, i have been looking for it for ages. Then Wensley Clarkson wrote one about him, and Billy's son rereleased the book his dad wrote. It's a good book.

is there earlier books than 1950 where crims wrote them ?

Norman Mailer's The Executioner's Song is a good read imo
