A fast and furious journey into the underbelly of Kings Cross, an infamous suburb of Sydney, Australia, this is also a true account of the man who was in the thick of the scams and rorts, the power struggles and gang wars, betting rings and match fixing. There was nothing in the Cross "The Inspector" didn't know. He walked the line between the crims and the cops and saw the best and the worst of both sides of the law. Snitch is his story. He knew the good cops who only wanted information and the dirty cops who demanded money. He rubbed shoulders with loan sharks, racketeers, and brothel owners, some of whom were the finest people he'd ever known, and others who were the scum of the earth. A fast and furious journey into Sydney's dark underbelly, this is the true story of someone who was in the thick of the scams and rorts, the power struggles and the gang wars, the betting rings and illegal gambling, and the rise of the Ibrahim empire. It is also the story of a man who traded information with both sides of the law—and lived to tell his tale.
