|Description||As powerful today as it ever was, the Mafia's involvement in organised crime in Australia is long and deep. Despite denials by major policing organisations of its existence in this country, the key Mafia families in Australia are linked to international crime syndicates around the world. Shifting massive stashes of drugs and money through increasingly complex networks, these families have also had significant connections to law enforcement agencies and government. With powerful and uncomporomising clarity, Evil Life shows that Australia is a key part of the global drug network. It also demonstrates how cultural ties built on decades of Italian migration have been used to create modern and highly sophisticated crime syndicates. The dark side of the Italian diaspora is revealed in all its unexpected detail.|

A Frightening Eye-Opener
Clive Small and Tom Gilling is giving us a very frightening and detailed story about the Calabrian Mafia in Australia. Very, very detailed in its approach. Maybe this is necessary, but somehow confusing for me as well. All my life, I am 86, I was interested in political and social affairs, which means, reading about it. I always tried to get the information from as many sources as possible, to come to my own conclusion. In this case, is there any? I do not think so. I must read "Evil Life" more than once to fully understand all the problems explained in the book, what it actually means to me and to our country Australia. After the first reading, I got more frightened of the impact the Calabrian Mafia has on our country, than the Islamic State. Will I change my mind reading it a second time? I do not know. It is one of the books you read and keep it, if you are interested in political and social affairs. In my bookshelf it stands now next to Selwyn Raab "Five Families".
