A childhood memoir of South London during the swinging 1960s and 1970s, miniskirts and the Beatles, where life was anything but normal. From villains and bent coppers to gunrunning in Africa and imprisonment, all brought to a focus by an IRA terrorist assassination plot that punctuated the end of an era. This is the story of small-time scoundrel, Victor Richardson, a character larger than life but smaller than human, seen through the eyes of his son, Martin, who pieces together fragments from the past to present an insightful picture of gangland London at its height, painting an autobiographical account of his father’s ill-fated life.
