    I enjoyed this book it flowed well and had a nice blend of information I didn t find it particularly shocking It was however a good light read offering an interesting insight into varied aspects of criminal activity as well as the criminals themselves Definitely worth a couple of pound

    Very informative without glamourising crime Lots of behind the scenes info that does not come into the public arena.

    not a bad read but i was expecting and it didnt really deliver, alot of people in the book are nameless, and although i understand this is due to legal reasons, it doesnt read very well doesnt really go into great detail when he could have and spends far too much time on the lowest ranking footsoldiers when the reader really wants to read about the mr bigs.did make good use of his journalist background by including various newspaper articles at relevant stages, which i thought demonstrated various points wellas stated previously, not an absoulte must read but not a bad read either

    Thoroughly good read although there are areas that are rather boring like internet crime, just a filler i feel I skipped by these as i prefer the nitty gritty stuff.

    I enjoyed this Well written and quite factual Always funny to hear the media s view when you know what really happened If crime interests you then give it a try If not, then why are you here Sideman Go back to the hello kitty section

    Slightly Boring.The book did educate me on a few thigs about gangs and such and i got a giggle here or there but i found the writer to be a bit ego driven, a lot of self stroking.
