      A book about Birmingham???ere's a rarity. Excellent account of 60's gangland culture, made more enjoyable as it featured my beloved city. A great fictional-based-on-true-events story by a debut novelist. Only downside was the quality of the print, my copy had spelling & grammatical errors and at times words with different fonts?!?! Bought from a reputable high st bookseller who's name begins with 'W'. Fortunately it didn't spoil what is in my eyes, a bostin book.

      A great fictional account of the war between Birmingham gangsters, the Fewtrell family and the London mobsters the Krays - and how things may have unraveled during the 1960's gangland war. David has an easy approach to writing that makes the book simple to digest.

      Lock stock and two smokin barrel in a brummie accent!! Loved every page of this tale of Birmingham criminal history. Prior to reading this I'd heard tales of the Fewtrells and their exploits so this tale only added to my knowledge. While I do think that some of the tales have been given a creative garnish for story telling and data protection purposes, on thing is for sure, I'm more an overworld person and than a underworld person.

      Brilliant book, really easy to read, keeps you reading. Loved this story, just has to be made into a film. Highly recommended and very well written.

      This book is a fictional look at the so-called Battle for Birmingham between the infamous Kray Brothers of London, and the Fewtrell brothers of Birmingham.As somebody who was born and raised in Birmingham, I enjoyed this "fictional" look at the gangster scene in Brum in the 1960's. I say "fictional", as while many of the story arcs in this book are likely high dramatised, there are enough recognisable people, places and stories to suggest that the author is basing his story on some murkier (and [...]

      Absolutely brilliant!I couldn't put this book down. From start to finish I was gripped. Each chapter ending with me wanting to read on and find out what was going to happen. As a big fan of historical fiction this book what right up my street. Knowing the author as a musician, I was pleasantly surprised to find that he is an exceptionally capable writer. I'm looking forward to reading the next 2 parts.

      This was not only gripping but easy to read. Good descriptions and believable characters. If you don't like violence give this one a miss!

      When British crime writing is at it's best it is fast moving, gripping,gritty and a little disturbing and this book ticks all the boxes perfectly. I'd go as far to say it's the best British crime drama since Get Carter. The author paints a picture without being pretentious which is refreshing in this era of novel writing. Loved it, highly recommended!

    9. Jack Davey on said:

      This is what a British crime novel should be but very rarely are. The 1960s British underworld at it's best, Gritty, Brutal and surprisingly funny. This little book will probably go over the heads of some of the highbrow amongst us, but it will, I'm certain be classed as a Classic piece of British crime writing in years to come. First novel, WOW. More, more , more please Mr Keogh.
