The Fall of the Essex Boys: a tale revisited

Not sure what this is going to be like, but it isn't the first time the real-life story of the Rettendon murders has made it to the silver screen.

A fairly gruesome tale it was too, and one considerably removed from the experiences of Ryan and co in White City, although Thetford Mike might have had something to do with this little lot.

Of course this actually happened. White City did not.

But it should be remembered that the kind of violence surrounding this tale is far from the norm, despite what a lot of people would have you believe.

Another review: bring it on!

I'm going to post this two latest Amazon review here because they seem to have a habit of being deleted, which you might think amounts to a conspiracy. But what can you do?

Great read
By Holiday reader

Good characters, great plot and very readable. I say this as a person who does not read fiction, but I can honestly say, that I could not put this book down as Albert makes you want to know what is going to happen to the characters as they fumble their way through the chaotic 'summer of love'.

There is also a great cast of supporting characters, and I often found myself wondering what their stories were, especially Eric and his house in Stansted!!
