Underbelly: Tale of Two Cities by John Silvester, Andrew Rule
Made in Melbourne. Slayed in Sydney. Chris 'Rentakill' Flannery was a Melbourne gunman who sold his services to Sin City's highest bidder. He went on the missing list because he didn't realise the future belonged to those who controlled pills and powders, not pistols.
The makers of Underbelly turn to an era when Sydney rivalled Melbourne as the crime capital of the Pacific. Sydney was Sin City, a town on the take for people on the make. From King's Cross to the sport of kings, from back street brothels to plush private casinos, high rollers rubbed shoulders with low life.
A world of corrupt cops, bent politicians and beautiful women who fell for the rich gangsters, And a few detectives trying to stop the tidal wave.
This was Australia's underbelly.
