If you think you know everything about the East End's toughest gangsters, think again.
Meet Linda Calvey, aka the Black Widow.
Growing up after the war in the East End of London, Linda falls in with local gangsters including the Krays, Freddie Foreman and Ronnie Cook.
When the love of her life, Mickey Calvey, is gunned down on a job gone wrong, Linda resolves to carry on his work.
But in 1990, after years of living in fear of her lover Ronnie Cook, Linda finds herself accused of his murder alongside Danny Reece, in a trial that shocks the nation. Still, Linda sticks to her code of honour, refusing to confess. Until now...
After 18 years behind bars alongside notorious names including Rose West and Myra Hindley, she is released.
This is the final truth about her life and what happened the day Ronnie Cook was murdered.
I have to say when I first saw this book I was eager to read it. The cover caught my attention right away and once I'd read the description I knew it was something I needed to read.
I certainly wasn't wrong this was a brilliant read.
Traveling back in time and living life with Linda, this book gave a great insight into how things were done back in the day. How it was living the East End Life.
This book is honest and open and covers so many different things that you just didn't realise were going on unless you were part of the life.
A thrilling read that isn't to be missed.
Grab yourself a copy and get lost in another world.
