Villains' Paradise: A History of Britain's Underworld
"Thomas has excelled himself. An important and riveting study in social history, it also has a very pertinent relevance in the crime-riddled society that is Britain today."- The Sunday Times (London) "A magnificent book. Beautifully written, utterly compelling: almost without fault in every respect."- The Literary Review Venturing into the urban underbelly of postwar Britain, and especially of London, this riveting true-crime chronicle explores the shadowy ganglands where for twenty-five years armed robbery, prostitution, vice, and drugs flourished under racketeer kings. Donald Thomas' The Victorian Underworld was shortlisted for the Golden Dagger Award and was followed by An Underworld at War . Thomas lives in Bath.
