Contents: Roy's words speak for themselves: I'm Roy Shaw. Maybe my name means nothing to you. Why should it? I'm no actor, no showman, no wannabe celebrity. I'm not loud or brash and I don't huff or puff or growl at anyone, but I live by a merciless code. For me violence is simply an accepted part of my profession - the profession of violence. I don't exaggerate the violence I have inflicted. I can't excuse it and I certainly won't apologise for it. If that makes me the devil, then the devil I am - I haven't got horns sticking out of my head or cloven hooves and a tail, but if you're unlucky enough to have me coming after you then beware - 'cos hell's coming with me.
Responsibility: Roy Shaw with Kate Kray.
