Based on the book Faces: A Photographic Journey Through The Underworld by Bernard O’Mahoney & Brian Anderson, British Gangsters: Faces Of The Underworld was Revelation's first foray into the world of true-crime and offers an honest and powerful insight into a subject matter that is deemed as taboo by many.


With unique access to ‘faces’ who have never spoken in front of cameras before, author and former member of the Essex Boys firm Bernard O’Mahoney takes us on a journey through crime culture that gained notoriety in the 60s and brings it right up to date with gripping and emotional tales of a modern day British gangland.


Drugs, robbery, terrorism, murder and ultimately, consequences. This is the Britain that has always remained silent… until now.
