They called Carl Williams 'The Truth' but the truth was he was just a fat kid with a pill press and a taste for fast food, women and bucks. He got lucky the day Jason Moran shot him in the belly instead of the head. Carl didn't return the favour: one by one, Moran, his family, and friends were shot dead during an underworld war for extermination.
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.
A story of greed and crime. One of many to come out of Australia. A good book well conceived and drafted. I found it a little disjointed. Despite this it is well worth the effort. The authors closely follow both the criminals involved and the investigations into there activities; as both are crime reporters who were working when the events described in the book took place these are described vividly.
