Middle Eastern organised crime in Australia is a dark, dirty and dangerous world of drug empires, murders and turf wars. Crime families dominate the suburbs and the streets... are a labyrinth of dealers. Responsible for cleaning up this mess is the Middle Eastern Organised Crime Squad (MEOCS), a specialist unit of cops fighting an uphill battle against a deeply entrenched problem. The officers of the MEOCS are both fearsome and intimidating. They have to be, to deal with the rising violence, brutal mayhem and sheer brazen scope of the crime that they see every day. Written by an award-winning crime reporter, The Squad trails a core group of MEOCS detectives on their journey into the Sydney's Middle Eastern organised crime fraternity and takes readers inside the inner-workings of their biggest investigations - the wired-up informants, the undercover agents, the ingenious tactics and electrifying near-misses. Gritty, compelling and unputdownable.

            November 22, 2013 marks the 50th anniversary of a tragedy that has haunted America ever since. And now, by revealing information never published before, *The Hidden History of JFK's Assassination* pierces the enduring veil of secrecy to fully document the small, tightly held cons...piracy that killed President John F. Kennedy. It explains why he was murdered and how it was done in a way that forced many records to remain secret for almost fifty years. The book draws on exclusive interviews with more than two dozen associates of John and Robert Kennedy, in addition to former FBI, Secret Service, military intelligence, and congressional personnel, who provided critical first-hand information. The book also uses government files -- including the detailed FBI confession of notorious Mafia godfather Carlos Marcello -- to simply and clearly reveal exactly who killed JFK. Marcello's confession is also backed up by a wealth of independent documentation. The last congressional committee to investigate JFK's murder concluded that JFK 'was probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy,' and that godfathers [Santo] Trafficante [and Carlos] Marcello had the motive, means, and opportunity to assassinate President Kennedy.' The Hidden History of the JFK Assassination' draws on exclusive files and information not available to Congress, which have only emerged in recent years, to fully explain for the first time how Marcello and Trafficante committed -- and got away with -- the crime of the 20th century.
