Behind the fashionable bars and clubs of Soho lies a fascinating history of criminal activity, featuring some of London's most notorious gangsters. From the razor gangs of the 1920s to the post-war gangleaders Billy Hill and Jack Spot; from the pre-war French pimps and the Messina brothers to the Albanian gangs, through to the thriving Soho of today, the area has been a Mecca for thieves, conmen, drug dealers, notorious pimps and crooked lawyers. James Morton vividly portrays the crimes and criminals that have given Soho its infamous reputation, including the vicious Kray-Richardson gang, a Second World War Jack the Ripper, the shooting in the streets of Soho of gangster Jack Spot and the gangland murder of boxer Freddie Mills.
