Underbelly: The Gangland War: The Gangland War
The book behind the hard-hitting TV drama
First he got lucky. Then he got life.
They called Carl Williams 'The Truth' but the truth was he was just a fat kid with a pill press and a taste for fast food, fast women and fast bucks. He got lucky the day Jason Moran shot him in the belly instead of in the head. Carl didn't return the favour: one by one, Moran and his brother and father and their mates were shot dead during an underworld war that was really an extermination program.
But Carl's luck ran out when the Purana Taskforce came calling. He was sentenced to life imprisonment with a minimum of 35 years. And that's the truth.
This is Australia's underbelly...... bullet holes and all.
