Organized crime ran unchecked during the 1920s in Sydney, Australia. Unlicensed bars throve, drugs were sold without fear of the law, while prostitution and protection rackets multiplied. There was also widespread gang violence, and bloodied bodies littering the streets were a common sight during what was known as the “Razor Wars”. Into that chaos stepped Australia’s most heroic female cop, Lillian Armfield (1884 – 1971). She had worked as a nurse for years, then surprised everybody by switching careers to become a Special Constable in Sydney’s police.
