The landscape of British organised crime has changed beyond all recognition over the last five years. Youth violence, the drug trade and rising levels of gun crime are rarely out of the news. The country also continues to experience an influx of powerful foreign criminal syndicates who are establishing operations here in order to take advantage of Britain's global connections.
Beginning on the troubled streets of the inner cities, Gang Land takes its readers on a journey up through the underworld hierarchy until it finally reaches the very highest levels, occupied by elusive and shadowy 'Mr Big' characters.
Written using a mix of personal experiences, undercover work, primary research and cutting edge investigation, this fully updated paperback edition of Gang Land sheds new light onto this highly secretive, often terrifying and utterly fascinating world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Shocking . . . Fascinating and slightly scary reading * Sun *
An extraordinary book * Donal MacIntyre, BBC Radio 5 Live *
Praise for GANGS * : *
Fascinating ... Thompson has a keen eye for the whimsical side of orchestrated illegality * Observer *
In the best tradition of the crime beat reporter, Thompson goes down the mean streets of the most insalubrious parts of Britain so we don't have to. * Word magazine *
Detailed and thoroughly riveting ... always grimly honest and provides an intensely readable and vivid first-hand account of criminals' lives and the impact of their activities on society * Herald *
