In early 2017 Shane was deported from Australia and told never to return; a decision he has been fighting ever since. Shane is married to an Australian and his children were born in Australia (one of them, notably, is AFL superstar Dustin Martin) and Shane has lived and worked in Australia since he was 20 years old.
Co-writer and previous author of bestselling books on bikie gangs, Jarrod Gilbert helps Shane tell his story – taking us into Shane's private life and behind the scenes of his time with the Rebels, and exploring his battle with the Australian government and its brutal tactics to expel New Zealanders, breaking up families.
This is a fascinating story that will appeal broadly giving insights into Shane's fight to return to Australia, his tough childhood and his love for his family.
