Author information

Lenny McLean, along with the Krays, is the most famous product of London's East End. The most famous bare-knuckle fighter ever, he became known to an even wider audience with his roles in such blockbusters as Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. Lenny died tragically in the same week as his book first became a Sunday Times number one bestseller.
