Winner of the 2018 Danger Prize for the best book, film or TV drama about Sydney and crime

Last King of the Cross is the sensational bestselling memoir that lays bare Australia's most notorious underworld figure.

In the mongrel tongue of the streets, John writes of fleeing war-torn Tripoli with his family and growing up in Sydney's wild west - before establishing himself as a nightclub boss on the Golden Mile.

Bullets fly, blades flash, bodies fall. In a city of shadows, John builds his army and an empire, partying like a playboy while staying one step ahead of outlaw gangs and hungry triggermen plotting to take him and his family down.

Crazier than Goodfellas, more compelling than The Godfather, Last King of the Cross is a crime saga like no other and powerful proof that truth is always stranger than fiction.

About the Author

John Ibrahim was born in Tripoli, Lebanon in 1970 (or maybe 1968, or even 1972), son of a civil war fighter and a merchant's daughter, and the second eldest of six children. John bought his first Kings Cross nightclub at 19 and still calls the Golden Mile home.

WRITE A REVIEW

Gruff/interesting look of Kings Cross

4

It was interesting to have insight into the venues we loved to visit. It's written by John and so unlike books written by writers there were times when he waffled. He chronicles his life growing up and making his nest in Kings Cross from his perspective.
