Never get too close to anyone, because you might have to kill them.
Meet Mark “Chopper” Read. You think you know him. His books have sold hundreds of thousands of copies in Australia. He’s been the subject of an internationally successful film. His one-man shows have toured Australia to sell-out crowds. He’s the most recognisable criminal brand name in Australia. But the truth is, you don’t know him at all.
Toe-cutter. Blowtorch aficionado. Killer. Husband. Father. Children’s author. Stand-up comedian. The real Chopper has been an enigma – until now, that is. This is the definitive Chopper story. From his strange, tortured childhood, to the formative years as a young gang member and developing criminal, to his decades in and out of prison in Victoria and Tasmania, to his friends and enemies, and his crimes and punishments, this book gives us the true stories that lie behind the Chopper myths, as well as the stories he’s never revealed before.
One Thing Led To Another is the real story of the man behind the tattoos, the scars and the most famous missing ears in Australia. It is an utterly compelling insight into our most notorious, most recognisable and most fascinating criminal.
