In March 1969, Ronnie and Reggie Kray were sentenced to 30 years for the gangland killings of George Cornell and Jack `the Hat' McVitie. But why such strong sentences? Were there other murders that weren't talked about at trial? The truth is told in Getting Away with Murder. At the time of writing, several Kray-related books hover around the top 10. The Krays have always been guaranteed True Crime sellers but, thanks to the publicity surrounding Tom Hardy's gangland double-biopic Legend, the notorious crime lords have never been more in the public eye. Lenny Hamilton was a jewel thief who consorted with the Kray twins, and had a deep insight into their underworld. In an interview he recalled the following hair-raising episode: `I'll never forget when Ronnie Kray burned me with pokers. I used to have black, curly hair then. He burnt me hair off. He held a poker across my eyes and said "Now I'm going to burn your fucking eyes out"'.
