"He was incapable of sitting back and accepting £800 a week for doing nothing. For Ronnie there was something wrong with money that was not dishonestly acquired."

  1. That's an unusual outlook! I'm curious about the Kray Twins.
    My Tuesday post features Shem Creek.

    1. Thank you for stopping by Sandra! :)
      If you would like to know more about the twins I recommend reading this book.
      Their lives are incredibly intriguing and John Pearson did a great job recounting it all. His writing is fantastic and I specially enjoyed that he included several direct quotes from those involved.

  2. Ronnie sounds like a real peach.

    1. Ronnie is an absolute nightmare! It both appals and fascinates me how he got away with certain atrocities back then... Can't wait to see how it all ends for him though.

  3. I wouldn't mind obtaining that amount of money for doing nothing, but I am curious as to where the money is coming from. Great teaser!

    1. The money is coming from a genuine investment the twins made. For once he is earning honest money (a lot of it even) and yet he complains! Ronald Kray is a true madman.
