Reprint. Author, Freddie Foreman. Originally published: as Brown Bread Fred. 2007.

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 oftern humorous stories reveal a caring man who belives 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 the most revered reputation.
