Editorial Reviews

Economist
[Treherne] is a relentless tracker down of fascinating detail....[A] compelling read.
Times Literary Supplemet
The author tells the whole unedifying story from wretched childhood to wretched death, to bloody fame and posthumous glory with clarity, level headedness, and with economy.
New Statesman
Gripping....The author convincingly details the transformation of two 'vicious thieves' into folk heroes as generations have found, especially in film, the version of events they want....Trehrene's concern, unlike his machine-guning protagonists, is with accuracy.
Times Literary Supplement
The author tells the whole unedifying story from wretched childhood to wretched death, to bloody fame and posthumous glory with clarity, level headedness, and with economy.
