True stories of the most depraved gangsters in the world, from China's Triads to the Sicilian Mafia, and London's Yardies to the Mob in the USA. Tales of drug-running, gun-running, protection rackets and violent conflict. The inside stories on dozens of criminal organisations: the drive-bys, shootouts, busts and life on the run.

The Providence Mob Raymond Salvatore Loreda Patriarca was dominant for years in the Providence Mob of the New York Mafia. Described as 'the toughest guy you ever saw', he once told Attorney General Robert Kennedy and his brother Jack that they didn't have the brains of their 'retarded sister'.

The Krays Ronnie and Reggie were the kings of London's rough East End, delivering beatings to anyone who crossed them in their 'business' dealings. Their downfall was the shooting of Jack 'The Hat' McVitie.

Al Capone Scarface, as he was known following a youthful brawl in the Harvard Inn, was once named as Public Enemy No. 1. He was eventually imprisoned on Alcatraz and died at the age of only forty-eight, not long after his release.
