The true story behind the life, crimes and disappearance of one of Australia's most notorious hitmen, Mr Rent-A-Kill.
Christopher Dale Flannery received his first criminal conviction at the age of fourteen. Within twenty years, he would become one of the most feared criminals in Australia, believed to be responsible for up to a dozen murders, most of which he was never tried for. His crimes would create a worldwide media storm and his disappearance would go on to become criminal legend.
This is the gripping biography of an underworld assassin who associated with some of Australia's most infamous felons and became dangerously close to many of the most powerful and corrupt police operating at the time. Exposing the double-crossings, brutal gangland wars and bloody reprisals of Sydney's dark underbelly, this is the true story of Mr Rent-A-Kill as it has never been told before.
Duncan McNab is a former Sydney detective and private investigator turned journalist. His encounters with many of Flannery's associates bring a unique insider's perspective to one of the most intriguing unsolved cases of the last thirty years.
