Jared Savage, who has twice been named NZ Reporter of the Year, has carved a niche reporting on organised crime. His 2019 doco, Fighting the Demon, delved into Aotearoa’s ongoing methamphetamine crisis.
His bestselling 2020 book, Gangland, shone a light on the evolution of gangs in Aotearoa. Hot off the press, his follow-up Gangster’s Paradise is about the deadly escalation of gang culture in this country. In recent times, gang recruitment has almost doubled; 300 million dollars are made a year dealing meth alone. It is a world of drugs, guns and money. Lots of money.
Jared goes behind the headlines to tell tales of turf wars, retaliation and retribution.
