An insightful biography of fighting legend Lenny McLean by his widow Valerie.It has been three years since The Guv'nor was published, turning bareknuckle fighter Lenny McLean into an unlikely cult hero. Lenny died shortly after his autobiography came out, devastating his wife of twenty-nine years, Valerie. Now she feels she is able to put together an intimate portrait of Lenny and reveal what it was like to be married to this formidable and charismatic man.Lenny always said he had enough stories from his extraordinary life to fill another book - now Val will take up the pen on his behalf. They started courting when Val was eighteen, in the face of opposition from her family who knew Lenny's reputation as a tearaway. Her life from that point onwards was never dull, as she found herself dealing with the unpredictable Lenny, making cups of tea for a Mafia don, and coping with the aftermath of the horrific shooting of her husband, who was hit in the back outside their front door.This is a completely new and exciting version of Lenny's life told by the person who knew him best. As raw and colourful as its bestselling predecessor, this will become a must-have companion for all those who own a copy of The Guv'nor.
