Summary
Bestselling writer and organised-crime expert Keith Moor takes us behind the headlines of the world's biggest seizure of ecstasy to expose a sophisticated mafia network in Australia. In 2007, Melbourne customs officials intercepted 15 million ecstasy tablets hidden in 3000 tomato tins arriving from Naples, Italy -- the largest haul of ecstasy in the world. The seized pills had a street value of $440 million. After getting a lucky break from the actions of a diligent customs officer, the Australian Federal Police swooped on the traffickers. As they brought in the suspects, the powerful Calabrian mafia was exposed as being at the heart of it all. Drawing on years of research and never-before-revealed detail, Busted details this extraordinary case -- one of the largest AFP operations ever -- and how it fits into the murky history of Australian organised crime. From the Walkley Award-winning author of Crims in Grass Castles, this is a fascinating and powerful account of one of the biggest crimes, and many of the worst criminals, our society has seen
