The face of crime in Australia has changed considerably in the last fifty years, and there is no one more competent to chart those changes than Alan Dower, one of the legendary crime reporters in this country. From the 1930s to the early 1960s the baccarat wars dominated the crime scene in Melbourne and Sydney. They raged much longer than the Chicago underworld wars and no one knows how many people were murdered in them. As the 1960s unfolded, however, police had to combat a different type of crime as they were called upon to solve the Graeme Thorne kidnapping, the Bogle-Chandler deaths, and the disappearance of the Beaumont children. This is a remarkable book presenting both an insight into the minds of men such as Squizzy Taylor and Frederick Harrison and a comprehensive picture of the major crimes of Australia's recent past.
