“The Forty Elephants” was a gang that terrorized London, England for over 100 years. And their members were 100% women.
With a pint glass in hand, Maggie Hale—the gang’s suit-wearing, bloody-knuckled, girl-chasing,”Enforcer”—tells the forgotten tale of how the Girls lived high on a lifetime of crime, and how it all came crashing down.
