From underworld crime to police corruption, former undercover cop Domenico 'Mick' Cacciola finally breaks his silence. Mick was a highly decorated police officer whose fight against corrupt police and politicians consumed his life. In 1954, at the age of nine, his family migrated to Brisbane. In the Sicilian tradition, as the eldest of four boys, Mick was considered the 'second father'. Growing up with racism and discrimination compelled him into a life fighting for justice. After he joined the Queensland police force, Mick became an undercover detective where, in the 1970s, he saw the ugly face of entrenched corruption. In these darkest times - pre-Fitzgerald Inquiry - he waged a long and bitter personal battle with now-disgraced police commissioner Terry Lewis and bagman Jack Herbert. From the first page, this gripping autobiography reveals what it was like to work under these corrupt officers and the incredible personal toll it took. Mick's story of survival and endurance is an engrossing picture of an honest Sicilian police detective battling a corrupt force. After 35 years in the force, Domenico Cacciola is finally ready to tell his unbelievable tale.
