Synopsis

WE THINK OF HUMAN LIFE AS PRICELESS, BUT THERE ARE MEN AMONG US WHO WILL END A LIFE FOR A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS. These men are the hit men, striking a contract with someone who has a target – and the cash.  The Hit Men tells the stories of some of Australia's most ruthless contract killers – their plots, accomplices, victims, crimes and punishments – and of the people who saw fit to employ them. John Kerr dissects a parade of hits, from the days of Sydney's razor gangs in the 1930s to modern times.  He gives unflinching accounts of a man who killed his granny, wives who shopped for their husband's killers, and cashed-up criminals who called in favours to arrange the deaths of their enemies. A chilling account of how quickly ordinary people can turn to extreme violence to get what they want.
