Behind every good man is a good woman. But what lies behind every bad man? Gangsters' Wives tells the side of the story you didn't know - what it's like to live with Britain's most lawless men, from the women who married them. Devoted mum-of-three Judy Marks was imprisoned alongside her husband, notorious drug smuggler Howard Marks; while Flanagan, one of the first ever Page Three girls, found herself splashed across the papers as the fiancEe of legendary East End villain Reggie Kray. Jenny Courtney, wife of gangster Dave Courtney, has grown so used to life on the edge of the law she has given the police keys to their house to stop them breaking down the front door. In eleven funny, moving, searingly honest first-person accounts, Gangsters' Wives answers all the questions you ever wanted to know - and a few you never thought to ask - about the lives and loves of the women who are, quite literally, married to the mob.
