About the Authors

Frank Fraser

Since the publication of his first book, Frankie Fraser has enjoyed celebrity status, hosting his own one-man show, appearing in films and even conducting his own guided tour of London's East End crime sites. He has written four previous books, including the bestselling Mad Frank's Diary. Having spent most of his adult life behind bars, Frankie is now enjoying living a quiet life and being able to come and go as he pleases - without having to ask permission from the Governor!

James Morton is a solicitor and author who has worked with Frank on his previous books and has published several successful crime titles of his own, including his Gangland series, the latest of which is Gangland: The Lawyers.

James Morton

Previously a solicitor for twenty-five years, James Morton then worked as editor of Law Journal and Criminal Lawyer. He is now a full-time writer and author of the bestselling Gangland series.


Praise for Mad Frank's London

“These are the amazing cases that fascinated notorious gangster "mad" Frankie Fraser during his life of crime... hard-hitting stuff.”

Sunday People

“When it comes to the legends of britain's post-war gangland heyday, few of the characters come larger than "Mad" Frankie Fraser.”

Ice

“Full of grim tales laced with black humour, this is frequently quite terryfying but strangely compulsive reading,”

Sunday Express
