Viv Graham and Lee Duffy led parallel lives as pub and club enforcesm raging gangland turf wars with a fierce frenzy of brutality and unremitting cruelty. This is a riveting double portrait of two of the North East's most feared men whose bloody rivalry was cut short when they each met horrifically violent ends. With a frightening capacity for extreme violence, Tyneside hardman Viv Graham struck fear into the hearts of his enemies, yet his benevolence tolocal charities was well known. A legend in his own lifetime, he never forgot the deprived community he came from, who, in times of need, considered him the forth emergency service. Teeside drugs enforcer Lee Duffy was proud to be known as Viv's arch enemy. He was feared and respected in equal measure, but was desperate to get out of the game for the sake of his family. However, Lee was so deeply involved that there was only one way he would ever leave … With unprecedented access to friends, family members and associates, Stephen Richards dispels many of the myths surrounding these legendary figures to create the ultimate biography of Britain's deadliest rivals.
