Summary
Growing up with racism and discrimination compelled former undercover cop and Sicilian immigrant Domenico “Mick” Cacciola into a life fighting for justice. In this gripping autobiography, Mick—who joined the Queensland Police Force—provides insight into one of Australia’s most notorious eras of police and political corruption. Exposing Mick’s long and bitter personal battle with now-disgraced police commissioner Terry Lewis and bagman Jack Herbert, this is the engrossing story of survival and endurance of an honest, young detective struggling to support a family while working for a corrupt police force
Summary
This true story was Underbelly before Underbelly. From underworld crime to police corruption, former undercover cop Domenico 'Mick' Cacciola finally breaks his silence. In 1954, at the age of nine, his family migrated to Brisbane. In the Sicilian tradition, as the eldest of four boys, Mick was considered the 'second father'
