I try and explain the camaraderie of the area and the people who populated it, the characters, their many virtues and innumerable flaws and faults. In this book I describe the spontaneous violence which constantly bubbled just below the surface. I tell of the promises, confidence tricks and scams which lured the willing but unsuspecting victims into deception, and extortion and of the sadism and the cold, callous selfishness of the punters.

I saw it all.
