Nick McKenzie: The Sting
Walkley-award-winning investigative journalist Nick McKenzie has been to the frontline of Australia’s real-life assault on organised crime, reporting for Fairfax and ABC’s Four Corners. The Sting tells the true story of an Australian law enforcement agency pitted against a tech-savvy, billion-dollar global organised crime empire.
In the edge-of-your-seat prose of a pulp fiction novelist, Nick McKenzie introduces us to the characters in every corner of a complex cat-and-mouse game: the globe-trotting drug bosses, beleaguered investigating officers, news-hungry reporters and desperate drug cooks. Joining him for this discussion is fellow reporter Cameron Stewart.
