Description

New Zealand’s underworld of organised crime and deadly gangs

‘The best true-crime book of the year by a long stretch.’

– Steve Braunias, Newsroom

‘A series of rip-snorting yarns about gangs, drugs, fancy cars, wads of cash, violence, and guns – Aotearoa New Zealand style.’

– Simon Bridges

New Zealand is now one of the most lucrative illicit drug markets in the world. Organised crime is about making money. It’s a business. But over the past 20 years, the dealers have graduated from motorcycle gangs to Asian crime syndicates and now the most dangerous drug lords in the world – the Mexican cartels.

In Gangland, award-winning investigative reporter Jared Savage shines a light into New Zealand’s rising underworld of organised crime and violent gangs.

The brutal execution of a husband-and-wife; the undercover cop who infiltrated a casino VIP lounge; the midnight fishing trip which led to the country’s biggest cocaine bust; the gangster who shot his best friend in a motorcycle shop: these stories go behind the headlines and open the door to an invisible world – a world where millions of dollars are made, life is cheap, and allegiances change like the flick of a switch.
