The Soho Don: Thrilling ‘Non-Fiction Novel’ Exposes True Story of Billy Howard – Powerbroker of London’s Criminal Fraternity

Startling revelations about celebrity excess, police corruption and establishment vice: this was the world of The Soho Don. From WWII blackmarketeering to West End club rackets - this book thrusts readers onto the streets of London for the three-decade reign of Billy Howard, who dominated the city’s crime scene. While somewhat introverted and private, Howard was the only man the Kray twins said they truly respected; a testament to the dark side of a seemingly-unassuming man who came to be known as ‘Laughing boy’.
