Publisher's Summary

New Zealand's underworld of organized crime and deadly gangs. 

"The best true-crime book of the year by a long stretch." (Steve Braunias, Newsroom)

"A series of rip-snorting yarns about gangs, drugs, fancy cars, wads of cash, violence, and guns - Aotearoa New Zealand style." (Simon Bridges) 

New Zealand is now one of the most lucrative illicit drug markets in the world. Organized crime is about making money. It's a business. But over the past 20 years, the dealers have graduated from motorcycle gangs to Asian crime syndicates and now the most dangerous drug lords in the world - the Mexican cartels.

In Gangland, award-winning investigative reporter Jared Savage shines a light into New Zealand's rising underworld of organized crime and violent gangs.

The brutal execution of a husband and wife; the undercover cop who infiltrated a casino VIP lounge; the midnight fishing trip that led to the country's biggest cocaine bust; the gangster who shot his best friend in a motorcycle shop: These stories go behind the headlines and open the door to an invisible world - a world where millions of dollars are made, life is cheap, and allegiances change like the flick of a switch.

Fantastic coverage of modern day true crime.

fantastic book and well written in logical steps. It can be quite in depth if you're trying to remember who's who, so it's not really a book that can play in background and if you miss a sentence it doesn't matter. miss a sentence and you could be playing catch-up for the next 3 minutes trying to work out what happened. the best but about this is how it covers modern day incidents, some of which are still before the courts.
