Savage Obsessions." is about the crimes and criminals who take their own obsessions too far. All the stories are true, and centre on the crime capital of Sydney - Kings Cross. Written by former detective and whistle blower Glen McNamara who worked the beat in the 1980s, the crime stories cover obsession from every angle. From police violence, police informants and their murders, women who kill their mothers, paedophiles, gang rapists and suicides, this book is a true crime thriller. Written in a laconic style that is easy to read, conversational and in the language of the street, this book takes the reader into the back streets and into the sordid workings of the criminal mind. Several of the criminals in the book are due for release from 2011. It includes Schapelle Corby's case and an informant's information about a baggage handlers involvement in drug trafficking.
