Summary
This book offers rich ethnographic and narrative accounts of men who have been engaged in serious violence and organised crime in the West Midlands, England, drawing on several theoretical paradigms. Through case study examples, it considers contract killers and the nefarious position that ‘hitmen’ occupy in the criminal underworld. By charting insider perspectives from retired police officers, informants, ex-military personnel and ex-offenders, this book speaks to those who have a vested interest in violence, organised crime and ethnography.--
