The Great Bookie Robbery of 1976 wasn't just one of the biggest heists in Australian history. It was also a curse. On the robbers and their families; on the law enforcement unit that sought answers; on the victims the aftermath left in its wake.
Following on from the story of the Great Bookie Robbery as written by Mark Lee Bennett, the illegitimate son of career criminal Ray Chuck Bennett, this is the follow-up of what happened to the survivors, and the families of notorious criminals now known for pulling off one of the biggest heists in Australian history.
Where the Great Bookie Robbery itself is a story of criminals and record-breaking heists, this is a story of the tragedy and bloodshed that can come as a result of crime.
