Every decade or so a book is published that is of such importance that it changes the way we do things forever. Snouts in the Trough is just such a book for its chilling chronicle of the crimes and betrayals of some of Australia's own police, notorious rogue cops who stand charged with the ultimate form of police corruption - shielding their crimes behind their badges. Andrew Fraser, author of bestsellers, Court in the Middle and Lunatic Soup is outspoken when it comes to corruption in Australia's justice system. This new book from Andrew Fraser will blow the lid open on the hidden world behind certain sections of Australian policing. These are true stories that you won't read in the papers or see on the news. Like the revelations that prompted the Fitzgerald Inquiry and the Wood Royal Commission, for the unsuspecting public these stories will shock and appall. The book describes how millions of dollars in drugs escaped onto the streets; how police corruption contributed to the gangland killings; how pockets were lined with the proceeds of crime; how the "brotherhood" operates in this country and the benefits they reap. This gripping real-life tale of corruption reveals a brotherhood, with hierarchies, rituals and codes of conduct; how favours paid are returned in kind; how money spreads out among the few; how protecting your mates comes in above protecting others - a force riddled with rorts that leads down a path to murder and extortion.

Love it. Helps vindicate me as I was knocked so much in the County Court about my attitude to police and drugs. I feel in a similar situation to the author but now the police believe me. Read Court in the Middle now trying to get his third one. I want to contact the author re my experience as a client of Tim Watson-Munro in 2004 and what my disgraceful lawyer charged me (maybe he too needed the money. Better stop now or I will be locked up too).

While entertaining I found the constant jail/crim slang really disconcerting coming from a Wesley college old boy and University educated lawyer.Just seemed like he was going for the classic bogan target market. Or perhaps he sees himself as a bogan/bovver boy? Also whats with the quarter page of writing,three quarter page of white space/headline at beginning of each chapter? With thirty two chapters it really pads the book out. Could have and should have been better written for such serious content.
