Keeping up with the 2015 Ned Kelly Submissions - True Crime

This year I've promised myself a red hot go at reading the entire submissions list for all 3 of the Ned Kelly Categories. Preferably before the 2016 Submissions List is released although there are days when I think I might have bitten off more than I can possibly chew. Still - getting there :)

Starting out with the True Crime list because I CLEARLY have some work to do here:

Shotgun and Standover

True Crime

Few names in Australian criminal history are as redolent as the Painters and Dockers. They were a union gone to the bad. From their outset in the early years of the 20th 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 of some of the most violent and dangerous men in Australia.

Currently Reading - Shotgun and Standover, James Morton & Russell Robinson

The only good thing about a dose of the lurgy is a spot of reading catching up, although this spot wasn't nearly as productive as I would normally like (okay so the lurgy was a bit more dramatic than I'd normally like as well)... but this is one of the books that I picked up at the recent Crime & Justice Festival, so I took the opportunity to finish it off.
