Product Description

The complete story of the lives and shoddy business deals of Michael McGurk and Ron “Cottees” Medich from the person McGurk confided in.

We all know Sydney is full of corruption and crime, but none of us expected to read about a Sydney businessman being shot in the back of his head, in his driveway, in front of his nine-year-old son, in Cremorne. Nor that the order would come from a Point Piper millionaire.

Kate McClymont is Australia’s best-known investigative journalist. Kate and McGurk received intel that he was going to be ‘hit’. Before the two could meet, McGurk was murdered. Kate and her family also received death threats and were moved to a hotel for a few days.

This story involves bumbling criminals, turncoats, snitches, miniature korans, developers, wealthy people brought down, and devastated families. It unpacks the structures of our major cities and asks some big big questions.

Multiple Walkley-winner Kate tells it with pace and character and her insider status.

About the Author

Investigative journalist Kate McClymont must be the best-known journalist in NSW, and probably has the most intriguing muses of any writer around. She is certainly the most-awarded Australian journalist. As a crime reporter for the Sydney Morning Herald, Kate spends her time mixing with and writing about some of the shadiest characters in the story of Sydney. Once derided by Paul Keating for spending her time “chasing subterranean odours”, Kate’s sense of smell has led her to unearth some of the underworld’s most fascinating tales of betrayal, corruption and crime.
