“Colin’s story is such an interesting one, to hear the lengths that him and his team went to for justice is almost unliveable. This podcast gives a never before heard insight into how close to the edge our police officers get, and it was a privilege to work with him and tell this story.”

Colin McLaren – Undercover detective said:

“The Sting podcast offered me an opportunity to tell how we truly stung the Mafia - over three years - and brought two Mafia cells to their knees. It tells of gritty endeavour, powerful camaraderie, undercover cops facing-off thugs capable of murder, massive drug importations and the bombing of a police headquarters. But, most of all, it’s my story, and I make sure that the truth is presented with all its casualties,,, as I bare the facts and accept the consequences to The biggest Sting in Australia’s history…”
