WINNER OF THE DANGER PRIZE 2018
John Ibrahim's incredible life story told in his own words.
Last King of the Cross lays bare Australia's most notorious underworld figure.
In the mongrel tongue of the streets, John writes of fleeing war-torn Tripoli with his family and growing up in Sydney's rough and tumble west - before establishing himself as a tough guy and teen delinquent, then a bouncer, enforcer and nightclub king on the Golden Mile.
Bullets fly, blades flash and bodies fall. In a city of shadows, John builds his army and empire - partying like a playboy prince of darkness while staying one step ahead of the cops, the outlaw gangs and hungry triggermen, plotting to take him and his family down.
Crazier than Goodfellas, more compelling than The Godfather, Last King of the Cross is a colourful crime saga like no other and powerful proof that truth is always stranger than fiction.
Honest, raw, hilarious and educational
I normally don’t read books. However I enjoyed this book. I couldn’t put it down till I finished it! Loved the honestly and the real life situations. Plus the business side of John. I really can relate to a lot in this book work hard and you dreams can come true, with few hiccups on the way 😁
Thanks for telling your story John!
Fast, interesting and real
Such a great story, with so many characters, anecdotes and situations. It was hard sometimes for the reader to catch up with so many names and situations., hence my 4 stars. I would have enjoyed if the book was longer so the writer could have take more time developing all the characters and situations
