              In the early hours of Thursday 19 March 2020, the luxury cruise liner Ruby Princess docked at Sydney's Circular Quay, the gateway to Australia. Hours later, 2700 passengers disembarked. Yet in the middle of a pandemic sweeping the planet, there were no health checks. Over the nex...t few days, the passengers got some bad news. The COVID-19 virus had infected some on the ship, and it spread rapidly. Eventually over 900 passengers and crew would be diagnosed, and 28 would die from the disease. Months of investigation and a Special Commission uncovered a series of catastrophic mistakes, from negligence to corporate greed of an industry with a history of only caring for its bottom line. This 'super-spreader incident' was a viral bomb that exploded in the heart of Australia's biggest city - and a disaster that could and should have been prevented. In his page-turning book, investigative journalist Duncan McNab explores the causes of the spectacular quarantine failure, the cruise industry, the lives of the victims and their families, and the turbulent politics of blame.

              Dead Man Running: An insider's story on one of the world's most feared motorcycle gangs... The Bandidos (Audio CD / Audio, Unabridged edition)

              We are the people our parents warned us about' is the motto of the Bandidos, one of the world's most feared outlaw motorcycle gangs. For ten years, Steve Utah was a Bandidos insider. He arranged the security of their clubhouses. He 'cooked' ecstasy and ice for them. He was at mee...tings where interstate and overseas drug and weapons smuggling was planned. He saw stolen military weapons being sold. He witnessed vicious beatings, helped dump corpses. He saw men executed in front of him. It all became too much and, in an attempt to regain control of his life, Utah resorted to the unthinkable: he rolled over to the Federal Police and told them all he knew about the Bandidos. This shocking, unflinching, tragic story is Steve Utah's confession. He knows he is a dead man running - that inevitably the Bandido code will be honoured and he will be silenced. But not before Utah gets his chance to wake Australians to the looming threat in their midst - the relentless rise of sophisticated organised crime networks inside outlaw motorcycle gangs and the apparent inability of the Police and legal system to deal with it.

              The world's most successful criminal empire is now being operated on a massive scale by outlaw motorcycle gangs - an empire that is growing in power, reach and ruthlessness by the day. Their international empire is both sophisticated and brutal. It is also both strategic and oppo...rtunistic - where they cannot dominate, they broker alliances. Above the Law investigates how it all started: the turf wars that were fought, the deals that were done, and how the sea of cash that was earned is now being legitimised. It also reveals how law enforcement at an international level is losing the battle against the gangs. Using exclusive insider sources on four continents, this is the first contemporary account of one of the biggest criminal stories of our time. Read it and be afraid.

              Getting Away With Murder

              Getting Away With Murder (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By McNab, Duncan

              "Sydney's shame: Up to 80 men murdered, 30 cases remain unsolved. From 1977 to the end of 1986 Ducan McNab was a member of the NSW Police Force. Most of his service was in criminal investigation, working on major frauds, crimes against children, homicide, armed robbery and finall...y corruption within the organisation. The one issue that still troubles him more than any other has been the unsolved death or disappearance of so many young gay men. He believes now is the time to address that issue. In the decade from 1985 to 1995 around fifty gay men were murdered in 'hate crimes' in Sydney. At least thirty of those cases are unsolved. Even more troubling were incidents in which gay men disappeared and have never been found, or those whose deaths were dismissed by the NSW Police as either misadventure or suicide u they add a further thirty to the toll. Some of these men died because they were thrown over beachside cliffs near the nation's top tourist spots. The line between a vicious assault and murder is a slender one and during this time there were also numerous brutal attacks on gay men, featuring gangs of young thugs like the 'Parkside Killers' and 'Bondi Boys', who took
