This is the 4th Book in the brilliant series set in the Ganglands and Courts of London in the 1960’s
Charlie Holborne is a local man made good, but the journey to good has brought him into contact with some of London’s most notorious criminals.
As one of London’s star Criminal Barristers he is now in high demand following some recent high profile court wins, but that hasn’t necessarily ingratiated him with his peers in the Courts and his Chambers.
Neither has the fact that he has had dealing with people like the Kray Brothers; but no matter what his peers think it’s not a good relationship, and the Krays are at war with Charles.
The death of one of the Krays gang leads to multiple investigations of a series of Gay Sex and Drugs parties held in one of the Krays flats. With politicians involved the press are trying to expose the truth whilst the Police are trying to gather evidence on the Krays. Meanwhile both the press and the Police are corrupt up to the highest levels and both investigations are hamstrung from the start.
When Charles is asked to represent the young lad charged with the murder of The Krays gang member he is determined to get to the truth, no matter what the cost.
In this story, as with the previous three, Simon Michael has woven actual events with some fictional characters and has delivered a story that is more than believable.
He brings the 60’s to life on the page like watching a HD Colour documentary on the TV.
Somebody has to take the rights to these books and turn them into a decent TV series soon.
