About this product
- DescriptionFor two years police detective Colin McLaren disappeared off the face of the earth, eventually surfacing in Griffith as a dodgy art dealer with a pretty girlfriend, and talking his way into the Mafia. For days, weeks, then months and years, Colin eats with them, sits in their homes and cuddles their kids, all the while climbing the N'Dranghetta, finally befriending the Griffith godfather, Antonio Romeo. This is the world of listening devices, wire taps and of trying to stay sane while doing deals to buy pure cocaine and tonnes of cannabis. Meanwhile, the Mafiosi kw they have a snitch and are leaving stone unturned in their search for the traitor. Infiltration tells the story of two of the bloodiest decades in organised crime, when the police ethos was to shoot first and ask questions later.
- Author BiographyColin McLaren was one of Australia's most experienced taskforce detectives, and investigated the Walsh Street murders, the Mr Cruel kidnappings, and the NCA bombing and murder. He has since resigned from the police and divides his time between Italy and Australia.
