About this deal

After serving 12 years in many of the UK's maximum security prisons, he went on to become a founder member and chief executive of UNLOCK, a charity which helps people with criminal convictions reintegrate into society. Cummines said that with a criminal record, it was incredibly difficult to find another job, and so thought "if you're gonna make me a bad guy, I'll show you how bad I can be. Cummines has criticised the system of high-security prisons, which places many brilliant criminal minds in one location and thus enables them to teach each other tricks and establish connections. It’s just a shame there aren’t more stories about his life as a ‘businessman’ and what he and his firm did. He went to prison and within the first few months he had taken a governor hostage for being "unreasonable".

It's a shocking insight into a society where the rules are made by gangland leaders and if anybody dare break them, they have to deal with the consequences. The latter stages of the book focuses on his reform and turning his life around, which really is quite something. There is blood everywhere, people dying, shotguns firing, doorstep slayings and all-out gang warfare between Turkish, Greek and Irish firms and Chinese triads.The book was okay I would have liked to hear more about his life of crime rather than his work after his time in prison. This led authorities to designate him as a class "A" prisoner, causing him to be frequently moved from one prison to another.

When I realised my mistake, I contacted this seller and asked if it was possible to have a refund because the book had not yet been dispatched. At 16, BOBBY CUMMINES became one of the youngest people in Britain to be convicted of carrying a sawn-off shotgun.Bobby was sent to prison for the first time in 1967, aged 16, and over the next decade he established himself as a ruthless hardened criminal through a succession of lucrative protection rackets and robberies. I had the honour and pleasure to meet the author recently and found him to be an entertaining an interesting travelling companion, but as there are a lot of people in the world who claim to have been there , done that et cetera , I take my tall tales of the old days with a pinch of salt, perhaps he picked up on this as he recommended I read his book. Bobby is one of the UK's leading penal reformers and has advised Ministers and Judges as well as public and private sector agencies on prison and rehabilitation.
