Twins Reggie and Ronnie Kray viciously ruled an empire of organized crime in London during the ‘60s, terrorizing the city on an unprecedented level. John Pearson immortalized their infamous career of brutality in his 1972 book The Profession of Violence, charting the twins’ gruesome rise and fall.
Now a classic, Pearson’s book served as the inspiration for the new film Legend, starring Tom Hardy as both Reggie and Ronnie. To celebrate the release of the film this week, we’re giving away a new paperback copy of the book released by William Collins this fall.
