Currently Reading - Infiltration, Colin McLaren

You really have to watch that blurb thing.  When I saw this book, first thing on Saturday morning in the bookshop at the Crime & Justice Festival I have got to admit that the blurb didn't do it for me "I couldn't put it down - Great!"  Mick Gatto.  I mean, what on earth does Mick Gatto normally read - would our tastes even vaguely coincide? 

But after seeing the author at one of the sessions early in the day, I bought the book, and I'm really glad I did.  True Crime, memoir style, this is the story of a policeman, that really makes you realise what the police go through. 

I will write a more detailed review of this when I get a minute, and I will write up something about the weekend at the Festival which was just fabulous.

From the Blurb:

For two years police detective Colin McLaren disappears off the face of the earth, surfacing in Griffith as a dodgy art dealer with a pretty girlfriend, and talks his way into the Mafia.

Opening Lines:

Antonia invited me for a stroll through the orange groves.  The sun warmed our backs and I allowed Antonio to play host.  My tape was on.
