  • Author: Carl Williams
  • Genre: Non-Fiction
In 2007 Carl Williams was convicted of three murders and sentenced to 35 years' jail. His role in the Melbourne Gangland Wars had made him one of the most infamous names in Australian criminal history, an unlikely gang boss with a baby face and friendly smile who was ultimately responsible for dozens of deaths on the streets of Melbourne. Williams began serving his sentence in a high-security unit at Victoria's Barwon jail. In October 2008 he was given access to a personal computer. Confined to a tiny cell for most of the day, with limited contact to the outside world, the computer was a godsend. As soon as he received it Carl began a daily correspondence with his friends and family, covering his life in jail, his thoughts and hopes for the future, and his views and opinions on everyone from barristers and judges to fellow criminals and deadly rivals. Just a year and a half after receiving his computer, Williams was bashed to death by a fellow prisoner, a trusted friend whose involvement in Williams' death was all the more sinister and macabre because of the many casual, warm and trusted mentions he'd received in William's correspondence over the previous eighteen months. The letters are surprising, revealing, often manipulative, frequently self-serving, sometimes touching, and always a fascinating insight into the mind of one of our most notorious criminals.
