The Survivor by Short Evans
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In the 1960s Jimmy Evans was one of Britain's leading safe-blowers, his own boss in an era when London's underworld was dominated by parasitical gangs such as the Krays and Richardsons. In 1964 Jimmy's world fell apart. He discovered that his wife was having an affair with George Foreman, brother of the notorious gangland killer, Freddie Foreman. Caring nothing for "Brown Bread" Fred's lethal reputation, Jimmy shotgunned George at his front door, depriving him of his manhood. Freddie Foreman embarked on a bloody ten year vendetta that embraced murder, assassination and arson. Foreman exploited his corrupt relationship with two leading Scotland Yard detectives who were his handlers, protectors and friends. As a result Jimmy was falsely branded "Jack The Stripper", the perpetuator of the infamous "Nude Murders". Now this title reveals the crooked connections between London's top cops, the gangland bosses and the serial killer they should have locked away, and, 35 years after Scotland Yard declared the Nude Murders "unsolved", it produces evidence that "Jack the Stripper" may have been one of its own most famous thief-takers.
