Foreman's dramatic kidnap and arrest for Britain's biggest cash robbery made headlines around the world, yet this daring raid was just the peak of the safe-blowing, bank-robbing career that spanned decades. His story is a fascinating, yet chilling account of life as a freelance enforcer for the Kray twins, and as London's most feared gangster. Bloodshed aside, Freddie's often humorous stories reveal a caring man who believes that violence is a last resort and who always treated people with respect. Revealed in these pages are the amazing details of the heists, the double crossings, the shoot-outs and the betrayals that accompanied life as a career criminal when the streets were controlled by fear. Exposed are the audacious plans behind the century's most famous crimes, the damning evidence of police corruption and the eye-opening events that gave Freddie this most revered reputation.

Freddie Foreman's admission in this book that he was responsible for the gangland killings of Ginger Marks and Frank 'the Mad Axeman' Mitchell, who had been sprung form Dartmoor Prison by the Kray Twins, made headlines around the world. To Britain's criminal underworld, Freddie Foreman is the Godfather. His name inspires more fear than any other. 'Don't mess with Brown Bread Fred or you're dead!' Throughout his career Freddie has ruthlessly upheld the underworld code of conduct. 'The 'comeback' for those who transgressed was mercilessly applied. Freddie's chilling but often humourous account of his life is a story from the inside of how some of Britain's most famous and daring robberies were committed, of bent coppers and the criminally insane, of loyalty and betrayal, and above all, killing. Few gangsters have been as articulate in documenting their trade or understanding the importance of their actions.

There will never be another Billy Hill - Reggie Kray. Bill had a great brain. There's no two ways about it - Frankie Fraser. I made Billy Hill. Then he got over the top of me. I should have shot Billy Hill. I really should. I'd have got ten years for it but it would have made me happy and I'd be out now - laughing - Jack Spot. I have no doubt that during his career Hill had some very senior officers in his pocket - Leonard 'Nipper' Read, legendary Scotland Yard detective. Billy Hill was Britain's first celebrity gangster. Born in London's impoverished Seven Dials, by the early 1950's he had control of the city's gambling rackets and masterminded a heist that set the template for the Great Train Robbery. He ruled the roost in the bloody era when the underworld's choice of weapon was the open razor. His violent clashes with onetime ally turned enemy Jack Spot became the stuff of legend, as Hill and his henchmen left the streets of Soho running red. But Hill was astute enough to choose his moment to get out, abdicating in favour of his gun-toting young protégés, the Kray twins . . . In this fast-moving biography, Wensley Clarkson charts the life of the only post-war British villain to truly make crime pay.

"Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather (1972) marked a transition in American filmmaking, and its success as a work of art, as a creative property exploited by its studio, Paramount Pictures, as a model for aspiring filmmakers - changed Hollywood forever. Jon Lewis's study of the film looks at the significance of The Godfather in Hollywood's dramatic box-office turnaround in the 1970s and offers a critical and historical discussion of The Godfather's place within the crime and gangster film genre. Lewis focuses on the film as a commercial as well as an artistic landmark of American auteur cinema, as a singularly important film in Hollywood studio history and as a brilliant reworked modern genre picture that at once adopts and adapts the gangster film."--
