Nottingham is one of the UK's fastest growing and most prosperous cities. Investment has transformed it into a cosmopolitan and vibrant centre for shopping, education and leisure. But the rapid economic growth has been overshadowed in recent years by a massive increase in gang-related violence and an influx of drugs and guns that has brought terror to the city streets, seen high-profile murders and led to Nottingham being labelled Gun Capital UK. While the city has a history of organised criminality dating back to the legend of Robin Hood, when the dance and drugs scene exploded in the 1980s, a far more malignant breed of organised criminal took centre stage. Prominent crime families from across the city who had been previously involved in armed robbery, protection rackets and extortion now fought for control of the lucrative drugs trade and forged links with other crime families in the UK and Europe to bring wholesale quantities of cocaine, ecstasy and amphetamines. Gangs such as the Waterfront Gang, the Radford Boys and the St Ann's Crew fell out over turf or personal disputes. In 2002, the problem exploded into a series of shootings running at more than one a week.
As local police struggled to cope with the spiralling pattern of murder and reprisal, M15 and the National Crime Squad launched a massive undercover crackdown on the bloody reign of the Nottingham 'untouchables' that would lead to the dismantling of one of the UK's most powerful criminal empires. Written with the pace and urgency of a thriller, "Hoods" is the first in-depth history of the Nottingham crime gangs and how they came to blight an entire city.
