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.

Absolutely Compelling

Sue, Masterton Paper Plus - December 2020

Something you may not know - New Zealand is one of the most lucrative illicit drug markets in the world. It's not a claim to fame that we wanted, but unfortunately it's true. In 'Gangland', award-winning investigative reporter Jared Savage shines a light into the deep and dark corners of 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 are stories that 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. Absolutely compelling, and more than a little disturbing.
