Abstract:

This is the graphic, authentic and often humorous autobiography of a young man's journey into Melbourne's underworld and nightclub scene in the recent past. 'The Hammer' was a feared enforcer capable of inflicting indescribable pain on anyone that stood in has way. Supreme violence and a manipulative calculating streak were tools of the trade. This story gives the reader a rare insight into addiction, the dark art of violence and ego involved in the world of a drug dealer, debt collector and stand over man in Melbourne's underworld scene. An embracing family background and unwavering ability to believe he was destined for redemption allowed 'The Hammer' to claw his way back from the darkness and use his hard-earned experience to assist men to break the cycle of addiction and crime and re-discover their own power and spirit.
