Filthy Rat: One Man's Stand Against Police Corruption and Melbourne's Gangland War
Filthy Rat is a brutally honest and action-packed account of the fight against Melbourne's gangland crooks and the corrupt cops who were in their pockets. Simon Illingworth's decision to speak out would change the face of the Australian justice system forever. "I am thirty-eight years old and too young to be writing an autobiography. But every time I look in the mirror I am reminded of the seventeen-year war I've waged with the true rats of our society - the corrupt cops and the underworld gangsters."

Good read!! But I'd like to read more details on police corruption that have been entirely missed and I feel his version only scratches the surface.
What about police cover ups in the gang land murders and well known crime figures working with the police force to gain back illegal drug importation and have the control of the market?? I mean,these criminals who were dealing were killed for one reason only- Greed and power...
Its a shame Australian people remain ignorant and wont educate themselves ,instead trust the media and government will honestly state a truth
the book was touching,,i only read the first 3 pages and i was hooked into reading more..even while im suppose to be working.its addictive so om going out today to buy the novel instead of trying to read it during work hours.
