Carlton Leach was a key member of the Essex Boys gang which ran riot in the 1980s and 1990s, sparking a savage drug war which saw three of his pals killed in the 1995 Range Rover massacre. Carlton was also a minder to boxer Nigel Benn throughout his glory years in the ring and tells of the blood, sweat, and tears of their special relationship. He also tells how he saved four of his firm from being tortured to death after a ten million pound heroin consignment went missing.
