Overview

From Brisbane’s sleazy Sin Triangle to drug busts in the wild Far North, this exposé from a former Queensland undercover cop reveals an underworld of crime and police corruption. Compelled into fighting for justice and honor after having grown up amongst racism and discrimination, Domenico ‘Mick’ Cacciola joined the force in the 1960s as a “sleeper” whose job was to infiltrate illegal gambling dens. Throughout his tenure, the book reveals, he witnessed the ugly face of entrenched corruption, spied on suspected Communists, and used his muscle to break up illegal street marches. Breaking his 35-year silence, Cacciola exposes the truth behind Australia’s most notorious era of crime and corruption in this remarkable memoir.
