Meet BADNESS.

He's the enigmatic, impulsive, exasperating, destructive, big-hearted Aussie outlaw who stole millions of dollars in daring bank robberies and became a folk hero as big as Ned Kelly when he masterminded two spectacular prison breaks in the space of six weeks.

Now Christopher 'BADNESS' Binse is serving a crushing 18 years in solitary. He craves death more than infamy. The only way he can find redemption is to open his tortured soul to acclaimed journalist Matthew Thompson, in the hope another wild child out there will learn from the strange and savage saga of his life and think twice.

Mayhem is the bizarre, scary, brilliantly unique and jaw-dropping inside story of how a naughty little boy became Australia's most notorious prisoner.

Let's get hectic!

    I picked this up expecting another just another true crime book, but it absolutely blew me away. It is totally full-on and puts you right inside the head of one of Australia's most hectic crims.
