Nine reveals the hotly anticipated series will unveil the untold story of how one woman's secret double life helped to fight the Melbourne gangland wars and trigger a Royal Commission.
"Nicola had the ultimate trust of Melbourne's underworld and was gangland's go-to defence lawyer, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Carl Williams, Tony Mokbel, the Morans, the Carlton Crew and Roberta Williams," Nine says of the mini-series. "While Nicola knew the underworld's dirty secrets, they had no idea of hers."
