Summary:

If you think you know everything about the East End's toughest gangsters, think again. Meet Linda Calvey, aka the Black Widow.

Growing up in the East End of London, Linda falls in with local gangsters including the Krays, Freddie Foreman and Ronnie Cook. When the love of her life, Mickey Calvey, is gunned down on a job gone wrong, Linda resolves to carry on his work. But in 1990, after years of living in fear of her lover Ronnie Cook, Linda finds herself accused of his murder, in a trial that shocks the nation. Still, Linda sticks to her code of honour, refusing to confess. Until now... After 18 years behind bars alongside notorious names including Rose West and Myra Hindley, she is released. This is the final truth about her life and what happened the day Ronnie Cook was murdered.

    I seriously loved this book. Linda's accent takes a bit of getting use to but as her story develops it makes it more real to know it is her. I would recommend this book to anyone

    Wow! I’m an avid reader, I read/listen to 2-3 books a week and this is one of the best I’ve heard in a long time. What an amazing story! It’s so good I couldn’t believe it was a true story. Well written and read by Linda Calvey!

  • The Month

    This was an incredibly personal view into the life of a woman who lived an unbelievable life! I enjoyed listening to the author narrate the book! I don’t think anyone else would do her justice, telling her life story.
