Chopper 7: Empire of the Gun


‘This book is a work of literary fiction – all persons believing to recognize themselves are advised to seek professional guidance.’

Underworld executioner Mark Brandon ‘Chopper’ Read became a bestselling author following the release of his autobiography Chopper: From the Inside. Drug dealers, pimps, thieves and armed robbers all lived in fear of the standover man, now Australia’s most notorious celebrity.

Chopper’s memoirs, written behind bars, chart his rise to infamy on the streets and in jail. Bleak, brutal and laced with dark humour, Chopper’s story gives the Australian public a truthful look at some of the country’s most dangerous criminals.

Featuring examples of Chopper’s poetry and fiction, The Singing Defective is a prime example of why Chopper enjoys such success in Australia’s literary scene.
