Gangland QueenslandBook - 2012
From the authors of the bestselling books Gangland Australia, Gangland Melbourne and Gangland Sydney, comes the next thrilling instalment in the series. Gangland Queensland heads north of the border to tell exploits of a colourful pantheon of mobsters, shysters, club owners, drug dealers, Black Hand gangs, crooked police and bikers over 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 organised crime syndicates like Japan's Yakuza, authors James Morton and Susanna Lobez examine the scale of Queensland's crime scene in forensic and fascinating detail.
