Recommended for: dealing drugs messes you up more than using them
Read in May, 2008

So much potential wasted. A possibly gripping story of a gangland war escalating but the authors have clearly written it piecemeal in a one chapter/ one murder fashion. It reads a little too crime porn in the pulp fiction style without any noir sensibility. Really needed to be framed within the organised crime history in Melbourne as it is essentially a changing of the guard story.
