In 1984 NSW policeman Mick Drury was shot in his Sydney home. The gunman was hitman Christopher Dale Flannery, the hit was organised by corrupt NSW detective sergeant Roger Rogerson to stop Drury giving evidence against Melbourne drug dealer Alan Williams. Years later Williams confessed to Silvester exactly what happened. When Williams knew he had a terminal disease he planned to kill former Melbourne detective Brian Murphy, missing him by moments at a city restaurant. Luckily Silvester had previously warned Murphy his life was at risk. Murphy is interviewed and gives a unique insight into this dark time.
