Synopsis

"Bouncers and Bodyguards" is a collection of astonishing true stories about the tough world of personal protection and nightclub doors from some of Britain's most notorious figures. Read how Charlie Bronson helped his friends out on the doors of his local in the early '70s before being banged up for well over 30 years; how Ken Wharfe, personal bodyguard to the late Princess Diana, spent his life in Special Branch looking after royalty and diplomats worldwide; how Manchester gangster Mickey Francis ran most of the city's doors back in the '80s; and, how a top British security firm advertised for bouncers for a high-risk 'suicide' operation in central Baghdad.By turns funny, sad and shocking, these candid accounts were written exclusively for this publication by individuals who have spent much of their working lives in what is a volatile, violent and frequently unpredictable industry. Compiled by former bodyguard, ex-mercenary and well-known nightclub bouncer Robin Barratt, "Bouncers and Bodyguards" is an expose of an infamous twilight world about which rumours have often circulated. The truth has never really been uncovered - until now.
