The Heartbreaking Human Story Behind Melbourne's Gangland WarBook - 2005
'I have lived in a world of whispered conversations and secrets. I have lived in a world of murder, corruption, bribery, crime and fear. A world where to ask too many questions would see you belted for your curiosity. A world with rules for men and where women know their place... I am a wife with no husband. I am a mother with no children.' Judith Moran is an extraordinary survivor - she has has been in remission from cancer from nearly forty years and survived an horrific car accident. She has also found herself at the centre of the gangland murders in Melbourne, a vendetta which has so far claimed twenty-four lives, including those of her ex-husband and her two sons, one of whom was gunned down in front of his children. MY STORY is Judith's life in unflinching and shocking detail, a life filled with heartache and trauma, violence and intimidation, and also, suprisingly, a lot of humour and love. This is the story behind the headlines, by someone whom the media has portrayed in a certain way without ever speaking to her, showing utter disregard for her feelings. This is the story of a wife and mother whose life was devastated by the shocking murders of her family - an unspeakable loss that would destroy most people. Judith's strength will amaze you. Her story will move you to tears.
