Finally the story of Tony Mokbel can be told.

Top crime writer Liam Houlihan documents the extraordinary rise and fall of the man they call Fat Tony, from his ascension in the drug trade to the decade long and only-now-complete struggle to hold Mokbel to account for his crimes. Houlihan explores the political intrigue and public embarrassment arising from the daring and complex escape by public enemy number one out from under the noses of the authorities, through to the way in which wealthy criminals with access to the top lawyers are able to exploit the system and delay justice.

With exclusive interviews with top cops and Mokbel family members - and a cast of characters from Zarah Garde-Wilson to Carl and Roberta Williams, Mick Gatto to Chopper Reed and Judy Moran - it's a stranger-than-fiction story of sex, pills, perfidy and pizza.

    Comments about Bigwig:

    I find it hard to commit to a book unless it is a true crime novel and this was one that had me glued to the book. It was a book that I could not put down. After reading around twenty or so books so far on the Melbourne Underworld this is by far one of my favourites.
