King of the Cross
‘Dapin’s no-holds barred history of Kings Cross and the city’s criminal past rings true and his portrayal of modern Sydney is also brutally honest.’ Canberra Times
Legendary Godfather of Kings Cross, Jacob Mendoza, has for four decades been Australia's most powerful and notorious crime figure. Now in his eighties, Mendoza believes it's time to record his epic life story – although finding a competent writer is never easy.
Mark Dapin moved to Australia in the late 1980s. He is the author, columnist and blogger and a former editor in chief of ACP's men's magazines. He lives in Sydney with his partner and two children.
