Tam McGraw was one of the most feared gangsters in Glasgow. Before his death from natural causes in July 2007, he had built up a huge crime empire which stretched from Glasgow to the Canaries. Few would talk openly about The Licensee while he was still alive - but now his incredible, untold story can finally be revealed. McGraw was a ruthlessly efficient gangster who ruled through fear and cunning, violence and drugs. They called him The Licensee - but not because of the pub he owned. Street players knew what it meant - Licensed to Commit Crime. Through their eyes, Reg McKay tells the real story of Tam McGraw. This title includes real stories about the time he cheated The Godfather, risking his life to end a dynasty; how McGraw was behind the UK's biggest coke heist and who paid the price; who killed the six Doyles; why the BarL Team was never caught; hit contracts, backstabbings and trading guns; and, vendettas and scores to settle with everyone from The Godfather, The Devil, M Family, Specky and Paul Ferris. McGraw did all that and much more, yet was never caught. Why? He was The Licensee. Licensed to Commit Crime.
