The Dark Side

Author's Home Country: 
Australia

"Each year at least $10 billion is laundered in and through Australia. Much of this money is derived from illicit drugs."

Hooked on the limitless profits of the drug trade, organised crime has grown so powerful that it now poses a major threat to Australia’s national security. Clive Small and Tom Gilling show how Australian crime gangs, in partnership with violent international syndicates, have exploited lax law enforcement and corruption on the nation’s waterfront to import narcotics on a vast scale from Europe, Asia, Africa and South America.
