              'We will run everything in this country, robbery, drugs, trafficking, in five years' time. I promise you that.' - Vulo, Albanian Gangster 'They're committing outrageous crimes on our manor. They're telling us they can operate wherever they want and we can't do a thing about it. -... Steve Marchmont, Essex Gangster For the past decade European gangsters have been fighting a turf war with homegrown British gangsters for control of the criminal badlands of London, Kent, Essex and throughout the UK. Many of these foreign gangs see Kent and Essex as a stepping-stone to the total domination of the British underworld. In the two years since the Brexit referendum this war has intensified with European gangsters deliberately setting out to win and establish their businesses, both illicit and legit, before the UK leaves the EU. The stakes are worth billions of pounds. On one side are the so-called 'New Kids on the Bloc': Eastern Europeans, who have muscled in and boast that within the next five years they will crush all others and dominate the British criminal underworld. On the other side is the 'Establishment': the old school, British based crime syndicates that have been working this area for decades. They own homes, send their kids to area schools, are known denizens of the local pubs and football pitches - attend weddings and funerals. Kent and Essex are connected by the Dartford Crossing - a transport hub for slave, drugs and arms traders as well killers and fugitives. The Crossing is the crucial piece of real estate in this bloody battle and the chilling setting for this hard-hitting, access-driven, insight into modern day gang warfare that takes the reader behind-the-scenes of a lethal struggle for domination.

              This is the extraordinary story of how Charlie Wilson - renowned as one of the leaders of the Great Train Robbery gang - turned his back on so-called traditional crime to become the underworld's original narco by masterminding a multi-billion dollar drugs network in partnership w...ith the ultimate cocaine cowboy, Pablo Escobar. Today, Wilson is credited with helping turn cocaine into the Western World's number one recreational drug of choice. Narco Charlie will unravel the bullet riddled story of South Londoner Wilson's cocaine empire and his forays into the deadliest killing fields of all: South America. Meticulously researched, Narco Charlie will feature interviews with many of Wilson's friends, family members and enemies on both sides of the law enforcement divide, as well as associates of Pablo Escobar. Narco Charlie examines in detail the final, tragic circumstances behind Wilson and Escobar's bloody deaths and how their twisted `partnership' proved that gangsters never rest in peace.
