REVIEW

GANGSTERS' WOMEN - John Kerr

Review Written By
Karen Chisholm

GANGSTERS' WOMEN is one release in a series of "commuter true crime" books.  Available via newsagencies and similar outlets, they are designed as quick little books - perfect for the train or tram journey home.  Not bad for a Sunday night read as well!

This book tells the story of a number of women who, for whatever reasons - and they vary woman to woman - choose to get involved / stay involved with Gangsters.  A varied selection, including some well known Gangsters' Women - Roberta Williams, and the women of Terry Clark's drug organisation - now probably more generally known about courtesy of Underbelly2.  Less well known the role of Kath Flannery in notorious hitman Christopher Dale Flannery's life, as well as Judi Kane - with a well-timed reminder of the origins of the Moran / Kane clan.

The book is a very quick read and the style of the writing is almost conversational - it reads like you're having a beer or a coffee and a chat with the author.  Very engaging, and at the same time quite revealing - GANGSTERS' WOMEN lays out the what about these women.  It may not be able to fully explain the why, but then who could.
