Publisher's Summary

Devious, daring, cunning...but ultimately too greedy, too cocky. Gangland Oz exposes the country's pantheon of crooks and criminals since the first convicts stepped ashore and got to work.  

Ten years on from the original best-selling Gangland Australia, top true-crime writer James Morton and barrister and broadcaster Susanna Lobez conspire again to track the rise and fall of Australia's talented contract killers, brothel keepers, robbers, bikers, standover merchants, con men and drug dealers. They examine the role of police, politicians and lawyers who have aided and busted criminal empires and look at the recent rise of youth gangs, cyber crime, identity theft and sexploitation scams.  

Vivid and explosive, Gangland Oz: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow is compulsive listening.

Ordinary

Narration hard to listen to. Statement of dates and mispronunciation of some Australian towns very frustrating. Tedious at times

Dame Edna

This is why author’s should never read their own books unless it’s an autobiography. She sounded like Dame Edna after smoking a carton of Camel and reading a nursery rhyme. The book itself was just listing historical events, nothing new and boring as hell. I don’t want to be mean but listen to the audio preview first you’ll know what I’m implying, I wish I did.

Well worth it

Great history of how crime has developed in Australia, good pace and length. Worth every minute.
