The ‘Lawyer X’ saga sparked a Royal Commission. Nicola Gobbo was the barrister who played on both sides of the law, two-timing the cops and the drug lords for fifteen years.
We go behind the headlines to tell a tale of sex, power, corruption and gangland crime, and we reveal Gobbo’s connection to two of Victoria’s most high-profile murder cases.
In this international award-winning, true-crime series, investigative journalist, broadcaster and author Adam Shand takes viewers behind the headlines to the very source – police, journalists, victims and villains – as he digs deep into some of the most infamous criminal cases in our history.
Over ten weeks, Australian Crime Stories will chase down fresh leads and reveal new evidence as Shand, a Walkley Award winner, calls on his 36 years of experience to shine the spotlight on notorious and remarkable crimes that gripped the nation.
