About Frank Fraser

'Mad' Frankie Fraser is one of London's most notorious gangsters. Much of his adult life when not behind bars was spent in the shocking but fascinating criminal underworld. He now leads a relatively quiet life, enjoys the celebrity status brought to him by the publication of his Mad Frank books and is especially proud of the Gangland tours he conducts, taking in all his former east London haunts including many an infamous crime scene. James Morton is a lawyer and writer. He worked with Frank on his previous books and has published a number of successful crime titles of his own, including his Gangland series and Bent Coppers.show more
