The Autobiography Of A Career Criminal.
My story is brutal and violent, because that's how it was. For much of my life I have lived in a world where ruthlessness, viciousness and savagery are prized and admired. But the sane among us also lived by a certain unwritten code of honour, the main rules of which were: never grass; never cooperate with the authorities; and never let your friends down.
'A Few Kind Words And A Loaded Gun' is the autobiography of convicted felon Noel 'Razor' Smith. An extraordinarily vivid account of how a tearaway kid from South London became a career criminal, it is both a blistering indictment of a system that determinedly brutalized young offenders and a frank, unsentimental acknowledgement of the thrills of the criminal life. Shocking, fascinating and frightening by turns, it also reveals Razor Smith to be a remarkably talented writer.
