She was young, very beautiful and had everything to live for – but the life of Frances Shea, wife of Reggie Kray, remains one of the most tragic stories of the Sixties. Courted by Reggie as a schoolgirl, Frances was lured into an outwardly glamorous world of nightclubs, expensive clothes and showbiz parties. Yet she very soon discovered the real world of the Kray Twins, the hidden, twisted world where violence, drink, drugs and terror dominated everything. Frances broke away and briefly enjoyed other relationships, struggling to maintain her freedom. Yet Reggie would never let her go. Paranoid and obsessive, he monitored her every move, stalking her night and day. By the time she married Reggie in their ‘Wedding of the Year’ in 1965, Frances and her family had become inextricably linked with the Twins’ downward spiral from gangland extortion and brutality into senseless murder and mayhem. Trapped, desperate and unable to cope, just two years later Frances died from a drug overdose. Only now, 50 years later, in a revealing and shocking examination of the facts, the truth about the life of Frances Shea and her short marriage to Reggie Kray is finally revealed in this new, revised edition. With never-before seen photographs, documents and revelations, the book  explodes the long-standing myths that have surrounded the marriage, uncovering the sordid reality of the Kray world.
