Book Synopsis

"Gangland Australia" is a book about organized crime and the professional criminals who have recklessly cut a swathe through Australia over the last 200 years. It is a book with accounts of murder, robbery, standover, prostitution, drugs, great escapes, revenge, betrayal, corruption, police, lawyers, doctors and politicians.This is a forensic investigation of criminal gangs in Australia, from convicts and bushrangers right up to the recent gangland slayings in Melbourne.It is written in a very accessible style, with a narrative flow which reads as part history, part-thriller. The authors have done extensive research and cover a myriad of Australian crime histories including tracing back the beginnings of drug trafficking, ethnic crime waves, police corruption to name a few.Written by one of Britain's most popular true crime authors, James Morton, and leading Australian legal journalist, Susanna Lobez, this is the latest in Morton's highly successful series, which includes "Gangland", "Gangland: The Early Years", "Gangland International: The Mafia and Other Mobs", and "Gangland: The Lawyers".
