The real story of the Glasgow Ice Cream Van Wars. In Glasgow in the 1980s, you could earn more money selling Ice Cream than you could from selling drugs. The lack of shops in the vast run-down housing estates with thousands of families with money to spend was a captured market providing a very good living for the Italian families who controlled the Ice cream trade in Glasgow. Tam McGraw was building a reputation as an up and coming gangster who led a team who specialised in post office, factory, and cash and carry raids throughout Scotland. He stumbled across the vast profits to be made in the Ice Cream trade by accident while on a raid on the premises of Marchetti brothers cash and carry. Tam McGraw decided that night that he could earn a lot more money a much easier way than robberies. He was going to take over the Ice Cream trade in Glasgow. But first Tam had to test the strength of the Italians and the reaction of the police. So he started with Carntyne one of Marchetti's most lucrative routes. McGraw went for the jugular right from the start. He knew Marchetti would not give in easily, they would try and defend their territory, but they were about to suffer brutality and destruction that they could never have imagined in their wildest nightmares. McGraw planned to be the Ice Cream King of Scotland, and Carntyne is where he would lay the foundations of his throne. Nothing or no one would stand in his way. This is the story of the start of the Ice Cream Wars. Written in a broad Glaswegian dialect with a lot of swearing, the author writes as he speaks. This book might not be suitable for those who prefer perfect grammar and proper English. Violent with a splash of humour, I am sure you will find it an enjoyable read. Teddy Rennoc.
