    Having already seen the mini series about this chapter of history, I had a fair idea about the characters.I was a little dissapointed that they didn t branch intoof the characters Some chapters characters wereintersting than others and I would have loved to readabout them.Overall it was a good read into the underworld of Sydney and has sparked my interest in findingof the book to read, findinghistory on these shady characters.

    This book is interesting due to the actual happenings of the events It s easy to lose your bearings though with so many names, events Highly recommend it to those with an interest in Australian true crime.

    I do enjoy these stories but I found this a little slow and at times put it done for awhile because I found it hard to pick it up.
