In September 2009 Sydney businessman Michael McGurk was executed in a
professional hit on the driveway of his North Shore house. With a
single shot to the head the property developer, doting father and
generous Catholic parishioner was revealed as a violent loan shark,
stand over merchant and extortionist who didn't care who he cheated.
His murder may have gone unnoticed had it not lifted the lid on some of the darker ways of doing business Sydney-style. And those caught up in his web included high profile Labor identities, hell-bent property developers, a merchant bank and even the Sultan of Brunei. Fuelled by drugs and alcohol, McGurk tried to scam them all.
As compelling and fast-paced as any thriller, this is the true story of a man who thought he could do anything and get away with it. It is also the story of a very public murder. Sometimes life really is stranger than fiction...
About The Author
Richard Vereker knew Michael McGurk as well as anybody could, although not as well as he thought. Mark Abernethy is best known as a thriller writer whose books include Golden Serpent, Second Strike and Double Back. He has also been a journalist writing for a number of newspapers including the Australian Financial Review.
Sydney came to a stand still last September when the seemingly upstanding Michael McGurk was blown away by a professional hitman, in the street outside his very affluent house, leaving behind a whole lot of questions about his background, property deals and connections to Labor party heavyweights.
Vereker and Abernethy have the inside running on this one and it is not going to be pretty.
