Rat in the Ranks - Bookies, Police, Pimps, Perjury and Thugs ... and the Man Who Stood above It All

Author(s): Alan Leek

True Crime

Australia was a grim place during the Great Depression.  Bettiing was inexpensive entertainment for the masses, but outlawed, police were forced to pit themselves against their public who flouted the law. Mendelssohn Bartholdy Miller was a young office called to this duty, but discovered a world of .corruption. He was ostracised, shunned and considered a ''rat'' for refusing to take part. This is a story of one man's battle against the odds to hold to the truth he knew about police corruption in an era of  SP betting suppression that led to three Royal Commissions that rocked the State.  It is also a tale of opportunites seized by gangsters, murderers and thugs in an era where crime flourished.
