This book is the basis for the first of the tv series of Underbelly. Somewhat a collection of chapters and words from the series of Underbelly books that were written beforehand. It delves a little into the war between the 'Carlton' crew and Carl Williams with a little history surrounding the start of the underworld murders. However primarily this is a book of short stories about each victim - the how, when, why and who. Each chapter deals with a separate victim and if you are a keen observer of the underworld sagas there is really nothing new on offer. More a targeted book for those with a passing interest that want to know more.
