Abstract:

"In the 1920s and '30s in inner Sydney, some of the most terrifying criminals in Australia's history waged war with razor and gun. As gang warfare raged, the streets echoed with the sounds of violence and ran with blood. Razor chronicles the nether world ruled by fabled vice queens Tilly Devine and Kate Leigh, and financed by the spoils of illegal drugs and alcohol, prostitution, gambling and extortion. Gangsters such as Guido Calletti, Jim Devine and Frank?the Little Gunman' Green killed, extorted and slashed with impunity. Facing them were the police - some corrupt, some honest, and a few as tough and feared as the razor gangs they fought."--Publisher description.
