More incredible stories from the authors of the best-selling The Second Father: An Insidera€™s Story of Cops, Crime and Corruption Whoa€™s Who in the Zoo is a first-hand account of Domenico a€˜Micka€™ Cacciolaa€™s life as a CIB and Special Branch detective over three decades. It captures the colour and grit of policing in Brisbanea€™s Fortitude Valley, which in its heyday was the sleazy epicentre of gambling and prostitution. Be transported to the pre- and post-Fitzgerald Inquiry eras: the crooked cops, the corrupt politicians, the stand-over men, the informants, the bank robbers, the drugs, the murderers, the crime and the violence. From making the arrest in Australiaa€™s first televised siege (the hijacking of the Seaworld helicopter) to being expected to chauffeur Commissioner Terry Lewisa€™s mother around, Cacciola has done a€“ and seen a€“ it all. He held a gun to the head of a hitman contracted by the Griffith mafia to kill Cacciola himself and grasped desperately as a woman trying to suicide off a bridge slipped from his fingers. Always an honest cop, Cacciola was told to turn a blind eye to the gambling and prostitution rife in the Valley. He did as he was told, for a while anyway a€b Just as the bestselling Three Crooked Kings captured a nationa€™s interest, this in-your-face true-crime book will enthrall.Wea#39;d been trained todisarm people withguns inthe depot but there was nothing in the manual about them wearing next to nothing.
