Description - The Last Godfather by Reg McKay

No-one could rule bloody Glasgow, they said. Arthur Thompson proved them all wrong. From a normal working class family, Thompson started out as a bouncer, minder and bagman. Hard, bright, he learned young. Cross him - you were scarred. Cheat him - he nailed you to the floor. The gangsters of Glasgow thought it couldn't get worse. It did. For forty years Thompson ruled Glasgow's mean streets, always devising new terror. There came a time people prayed to be crucified. This fully revised edition of "The Last Godfather" visits places no law-abiding person has been. Gun-running, murders, drug dealing and torture are still there. But there's much more. How he improved on crucifixion. Created Europe's Tartan Mafia. Invented concrete boots. Then there's his impact on others such as death by sniper, kidnap from London and tortured in Glasgow - and why he decided to do nothing about the Ice Cream Wars. Thompson died of natural causes but his influence didn't stop at his grave, left unmarked for fear of gravediggers. This new edition explains and describes The Aftermath in detail for the first time. Revenge from beyond the grave - the kidnapper killed. Hexed - his enemies since murdered yet the cases remain unsolved. Twice torched - who was so desperate to get rid of his old HQ? The good daughter's curse. The runt's tale and the end of the line. There couldn't be another - Arthur Thompson was The Last Godfather.

Author Biography - Reg McKay
