Summary
Few names in Australian criminal history are as redolent as Painters and Dockers. They were a trade union gone bad. From their outset in the early years of the twentieth century, they attracted more than their fair share of shady waterfront characters, and by the 1960s, 70s and 80s, they had become a fully-fledged criminal fraternity in Australia. In this fascinating and compelling account, the group's brutal history is laid bare. Shotgun and Standover is a definitive work of true crime about one of Australia's most notorious criminal collectives
