Description


A comprehensive investigation of organized crime in Queensland, Australia, this study heads north of the border to tell the exploits of a colorful pantheon of mobsters, shysters, club owners, drug dealers, Black Hand gangs, crooked police, and bikers throughout the last century. Beginning with the drug and sex trades of the early 1900s—and including the infamous fire at the Whiskey Au Go Go club, the explosive revelations of the Fitzgerald Inquiry, and organized crime syndicates such as Japan’s Yakuza—this account discusses these topics in forensic and fascinating detail.
