A True Crime series that goes back in time and through SA, WA and the NT in general. I have struggled with the style of these collections in the past, and again, this is an erratic compilation. Review to come asap as I'm behind. So very very behind.

From the Blurb:

The last volume in the best selling series, Gangland North, South & West looks at home-grown crime in South Australia, Western Australia and the Northern Territory. In addition to contract killing, prostitution, robbery, illegal gambling and the stand-over game, in these regions there has been a healthy living to be made from gold, diamond and pearl thefts.
Eastern criminals travel west, south and north to meet and do business, or battle with home-grown stalwarts such as Shiner Ryan, said to be able to open a lock with his hand behind his back; Spadger Bray, suspected of three murders and himself shot dead a decade later; blackmailing brothel madam Shirley Finn, executed on a Perth golf course, and many, many others.

Gangland North, South & West is everything that makes life worth living in the underworld.
