***The Sunday Times Bestseller ***
With stories of murder, theft, fraud and treachery, Underworld is a deep-dive into the history of professional and organised crime in Britain. From the racetrack gangs and the smash-and-grab merchants, through the Soho vice bosses and the Kray twins, to the Great Train Robbers, the Hatton Garden burglars, millennial gangs and the new wave of international hit-men and drug and sex traffickers, Duncan Campbell exposes the dark underbelly of Britain.
A unique perspective – told by the criminals themselves and the detective who pursued them – this is a definitive history from the very beginning to the present day.
“When it comes to stellar crime reporting, Duncan Campbell is the absolute maestro”
Baroness Helena Kennedy QC
“Duncan Campbell remains one of the very few journalists who has retained the criminal fraternity’s trust and respect”
