Profession: wide boy, gangster, club owner and all round scary sexy bastard.
Max Carter was born a Cockney and grew up rough with his brothers Jonjo and Eddie. His father was a no-mark, his mother over-indulgent of her boys. In tough East End schools Max got his gang together and then went on to rule the streets with them. He bought out night clubs, billiard halls and boxing establishments and started making his fortune early on.
When he met quiet, demure Ruthie Bailey, he saw ideal wife material in her. Then he met her sister Annie – headstrong, bolshy, always up for a fight – and realised he’d married the wrong sister, and there was going to be hell to pay over it.
Max’s likes: being in charge, cigars, shooting, and Annie.
His dislikes: being told what to do, drunks, and having fought free of his poor background, he NEVER wants to go back there.
