Summary
The last volume in their best selling series, Gangland North, South and West looks at crime in South and Western Australia, Northern Territory and Tasmania; where in addition to contract killing, prostitution, robbery, illegal gambling and the standover, there has been a healthy living to be made from gold, diamond and pearl thefts. Eastern criminals travel west, south and north to meet and do business or battle with home grown stalwarts such as Shiner Ryan, said to be able to open a lock with his hand behind his back; Spadger Bray suspected of three murders and himself shot dead a decade later; blackmailing brothel madam Shirley Finn, executed on a Perth golf course and many, many others. Here is everything that makes life so worth living in the underworld
