Adoptee John Shobbrook was an agent with the Australian Federal Bureau of Narcotics in the 1970s. In this conversation he talks about his new book, Operation Jungle, which describes what happened when he caught drug trafficker John Edward Milligan. He found that Milligan was acting for Queensland former detective Glen Hallahan, and that the police and judiciary protected Hallahan while Shobbrook's career stalled.
