Ronnie and Reggie Kray were sentenced to life imprisonment in 1968.

Since then comedians have based their characters on them, producers have made films about them, even colleges have societies named after them.

This book explores how and why they have become such icons, whether they were really the crazed killers they have been represented as and whether they became victims of their own circumstances.The book details why they were put away, the true extent of their crimes, the last 30 years spent in prison, the rumours of duplicitous dealings from their prison cells and answers why Charlie Kray turned to drugs and why, to many women, the Krays have such an attraction.

It aims to go behind the scenes to discover the world of the twins through psychological profiling, to study the sociology of the East End of London, investigate the true importance of the Krays, with the assistance of Scotland Yard and to predict the future for the Kray myth and their legacy to society.
