BOOK ONE: OUTLAW BIKERS: BORN TO RIDE THE ONES INSIDE BY JOHN KERR.
image of the outlaw bikie started with The Wild One and Rebel without a
Cause. Then and now, the outlaw suspects straight society is full of
crap, but he doesn't care and he doesn't want to change it; he wants to
be left alone to do whatever he damn well likes. A rebel yell moves his
spirit, and his wildness needs expression within a brotherhood. That has
not changed in the half century since those films. But crime has.
Criminals who ride bikes have made and sold drugs over most of that
time, and been part of that violent trade. Brotherhoods clash, and when
they do, people can wind up maimed, dead or doing time.

BOOK TWO: CRIME BOSSES: AUSTRALIA'S UNDERWORLD BOSSES REVEALED BY JOHN KERR.
Following on from the success of books one and two (Outlaw Bikers & Gangsters' Women) in the True Crime series is Gangster Bosses. The Little Fella, George Freeman, used the phone to tell the owner of The Palace, a Kings Cross casino, everything was `sweet in town' - but that's just for now, change was coming. It sounded like a provisional all-clear, from the officer in charge of illegal gaming in Sydney then. He sounded confident of his information and of his record of having the right oil, handy for exerting power (and casinos did normal trade afterwards). So is having ear of The Big Fella, of Chris Flannery and other hard men. L'Onorata Societa [The Honored Society], our mafia, will celebrate the centenary of its Australian branch's first killing in the 2020s. In the heel of Italy, they have been at it longer, and the good folk there call the way of the Black Hands, `L'Mal Vita,' the Bad Life. Here, we look at how they handle succession and generational change. It's an antidote to The Godfather, but the shotgun does appear, rather too regularly for those in the top jobs in Australia then and now, just as it does in the movies. Beer, served in contravention of liquor licence conditions, at heavily marked up prices, after WW2 was the `liquid gold' that gave Abe Saffron his kick-off as the Sydney crime baron they called `Mr Sin'. The sure- footed fixer became most well remembered for providing female flesh, in the chorus, a strip club, a magazine or in private rooms by the hour, as the wars went by. When troops went to the Gulf the first time, he went to prison after four decades of criminal leadership. Carl Williams joked he ran Victoria, that he was `the premier'. He wasn't even close, of course, but he did behave like the State's Lord High Executioner though, for 5 bloody years. Why did he do it? For 15 years Cabramatta was where heroin was usually available, the number of ambo calls to overdoses on the railway embankment alone a measure of that. Tri Mahn Tran's Viet-Australian 5T street gang wanted to control supply of this major artery, nine blocks of it.

BOOK THREE: COP KILLERS: MURDERED ON 'THE JOB' BY JOHN KERR.
Six cops killed in the five stories here were: blocking a road, following up a domestic threat to kill, investigating suspicions of intent to steal, checking a suspect vehicle report, off duty, and doing court duty when they met fatal violence. Their killers were impelled to kill by: a mental crisis perhaps aided by substance abuse, by a wish to avoid arrest and thus do more prison time, revenge on an entire force, obsession, and hatred of all police.

BOOK FOUR: BENT COPS: SWORN TO SERVE, THEY SERVED THEMSELVES BY JOHN KERR.
Some law enforcement officers have bent, broken, and abused the law. They have done so since the First Fleet sailed, and will continue to do so until RoboCop takes over. (Then, we will see how it goes.) They do it for gain, convictions, career, power, mates, sex and favours; out of fear of exposure; out of frustration with the evidence available; in conformity with others; or because they felt there was no other way. If what is alleged is true, some police connived with burglars to see a file uplifted from the Victoria Police Drug Squad offices during the Christmas-New Year period in 1996-7. The file covered E2/92, a high-quality informant and witness, a brave and effective citizen. The burglars' and the still- unknown police officers' connections had another $250,000 for the next stage: kill E2. A big-time Melbourne pimp and a murderer, both facing charges, said Sergeant Paul Higgins and other Vice Squad detectives took kickbacks to ensure the pimp's illegal brothels and escort services could operate without hassle - and worse. Higgins went down for 7 years and emerged bitter and angry with the criminal justice he received.

BOOK FIVE: GANGSTER'S WOMEN: YOU LOVE THE GUY. THE ONE WHO'S GONE... BY JOHN KERR.
The women who share a roof, a bed, a life with men from gangland have all the usual problems love involves, and then some. In the money one minute and skint the next, a good wardrobe is often all their men leave them when sudden death or a sentence of a heap of years is handed down. And most women can talk on their telephones or in their cars or living rooms freely - not always the case with gangster's women. The police are a constant worry, especially around dawn, with the insomnia nagging. Both rivals and friends of their men must be watched for signs of ambition or treacherous intent. Alcohol- or drug-fired episodes, gambling losses, loans from sharks, huge and fragile egos, flare-ups over nothing when out: it's a dangerous life being close to some or all of that. And children make anybody's life more complicated.

BOOK SIX: DEADLY WOMEN: FOUR TRUE STORIES OF PASSION BY JOHN KERR.
The four who have killed here, could hardly be more different people. Their murderous impulses are different, their criminal acts likewise. For the love of Joe Korp Tania Herman stood, literally, on Joe's shoes, murder weapon in hand, waiting for Joe's wife Maria to come down from her breakfast and be killed. The shoes were Joe's idea. All of it was Joe's idea. What was she thinking right then? Katherine Knight joined her lover, Pricey, in his bed. After `pleasurable sex' she remembered, she most savagely stabbed him to death, skinned him with meticulous care and hung his skin off a hook in his hallway. She recalled nothing of doing this. Tracey Wigginton was a lesbian vampire killer - such a portrait fitted the bare facts presented in court. The court established that she had many personalities, but all of them were silent in that hearing. More like United States of Tara than the stories of anyone in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Wigginton's story breaks hard hearts.

BOOK SEVEN: DRUG RUNNERS: BRINGING IT IN AND THE DAMAGE DONE BY JOHN KERR.
The penalties for smuggling have always varied according to the laws, customs, taxes and bans of the aggrieved jurisdiction in which you were caught; the value and nature of the contraband; and how you can or should be made to pay, your life, blood, time and money being the usual punishments on that menu. Victoria Police went public in 2009 to say about 100 mainly western Melbourne couriers, some of whom had been regularly returning from Vietnam couriering drugs, heroin predominantly, would be well advised to stop - they were known and faced certain arrest and a likely death penalty. Victoria Police painted these drug smugglers as often-as-not as victims. Hitting legitimate business problems or legal gambling ones put them in the hands of loan sharks who pushed them on to drug smugglers.

BOOK EIGHT: SEX SLAVE (TRUE THAILAND SEX INDUSTRY STORIES)BY CAREY FURZE.
it happened to me and can happen to any young woman. This story is true
and is based on Carey's first-hand experience in Thailand and
occurrences relayed to her by others she met while travelling over the
years. The characters in this book are composites of Carey and other
girls, some of whom were never seen again. For too long Carey pushed
aside this experience in Thailand as an unpleasant incident she had
created and deserved, a freak twist of fate that had spared her, but was
not so benevolent to others. Carey does not want to squander her second
chance, or waste the opportunity of enjoying life and her many varied
experiences, so she wants to tell the story of her lust for adventure
and illustrate that sometimes life is not fair.Published by Wilkinson Publishing (ISBN: 9781921667558), this book retails in-store for $9.95.
