Publisher's Summary

Coming from a huge close-knit family of street traders long before it was legalized, Stephen Sayers spent his early years on the barrows, witnessing constant brushes with the law. Aunties and uncles were frequently incarcerated and a hatred and distrust of authority swelled within the younger members of the family. 

The scene was set. Standing alongside his brothers and cousins in vicious street fights and feuds with rival gangs, they've been linked to multi-million pound armed robberies, extortion, unsolved gangland murders, and protection rackets. Those links made them a formidable force in the criminal underworld. Stephen gives us a first-hand account of growing up as a Sayers and living up to the reputation the name carries. He didn't just carve out a criminal career, he wrote it in blood on the streets. 

If you've heard the rumors...if you believe them...the Sayers run Newcastle.

Dealt with Stephen

I had the pleasure of dealing with Stephen when I was in the prison service, I even escorted him to and from prison to court at one of his trials as a Cat A. Far too much provardo and bigging himself up especially when it comes to the prison service asking him favour or bending to his will. He was nothing, he was a criminal and was treated the same as any other criminal, no special treatment at all.

Gripping, brutally forthright

Really enjoyed this, real brilliant insight into a life of crime told from the heart.
Probably would if they had used a Geordie as opposed to Yorkshireman to tell the story

Superb

All crime fans will love this book, honest, brutal at times, and pulls no punches, doesn’t glamourise it, a true honest account. Well done Steve and Stephen,
