The Fix: Scott Bainbridge
Scott Bainbridge has uncovered the fascinating true story of a group of grifters who came to New Zealand in the 1960s, offering a get-rich-quick scheme and ripping off small-time Kiwi investors. It turned into a worldwide manhunt with the mastermind of the scheme managing to elude the FBI, Royal Canadian Mounties and Scotland Yard – for a while. The Fix is the eighth book by a writer who is no slouch when it comes to documenting local crime, and is renowned for his writing for the TVNZ series The Missing. Buckle in as Bainbridge offers up the almost-too-incredible-to-be-true tale of the time that organised crime and expert money launderers perpetuated their evil intent on the innocents of our nation.
