The Viv Graham Series by best selling author Stephen Richards
TITLE: Viv Graham, Britain’s Most Feared Gangster ISBN: 1844541274
RRP £7.99 Paperback by Stephen Richards JUNE 2005

Viv Graham's name means many things to many people. A legend in his own lifetime, he worked his way to the very top of the North East's criminal elite until his iron grip on its activities extended to the darkest corner of the underworld. The mere mention of his name would strike dread into the hearts of his enemies and all knew that, if Viv was after you, then hell was coming with him. His frightening capacity for extreme violence was never questioned, and his size and ability to fight enabled him to exert a huge influence on those around him - but he also had a reputation as a hard man with a heart of gold who looked after those that looked after each other. In this frank and astonishing book, Stephen Richards peels away the tissue of lies surrounding the life and death of Viv Graham and, using information from over 350 of Viv's closest friends, family associates, he finally tells the brutal and tragic stories of one of gangland's greatest heroes with vital new updates.


Fight to the Death: Viv Graham and Lee Duffy - Too Hard to Live, Too Young to Die 
RRP: £9.99 Paperback by Stephen Richards May 2006

Viv Graham and Lee Duffy led parallel lives as pub and club enforcers, raging their gangland turf wars with a fierce frenzy of brutality and unremitting cruelty. This frank and astonishing book by underworld authority Stephen Richards 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 protection hardman Viv struck fear into the hearts of his enemies, yet his benevolence to local charities and schemes to keep kids away from drugs and crime was well known - any patch that Viv protected was guaranteed free of both. He was the ultimate maverick trouble-shooter. Teeside drugs enforcer Lee Duffy had half his foot shot off in an assassination attempt and his skull beaten with a crowbar, but his streetwise instinct was unmatched. With unprecedented access to friends, family and associates, Stephen Richards dispels many of the myths surrounding these legendary figures.
