By Eddie Blundell
In the autumn of 2012, and quite out of the blue, I was emailed by a lady who invited me to write her husband’s life story. He was, she told me, ‘a successful business man as well as a gangster greatly respected among criminals.’
It seemed an invitation too good to turn down.
I had not previously ghostwritten but this is how the book turned out. I could not easily write an objective account of Eddie Blundell’s activities in London and Essex and so the tale is told from his point of view. Over many months Eddie dictated his story onto tape and his wife then forwarded the verbatim account to me. My role was to shape his sometimes rambling story. Throughout the language is very strong but I have tried to capture his voice register.
