In 2001, an empty dinghy was found floating on a river on the north coast of New South Wales, leading to an extraordinary chain of events.
Harry Gordon was a businessman driven by greed and ego, a dangerous combination that blinkered his business dealings with a mob of Russians. Once he realised he was involved in a sham and pressured into buying his way out, it was too late. A couple of beatings later, he realised his life was in danger.
With $100,000 worth of cash, a kombi van, a couple of bottles of champagne and a new lease on life, Harry Gordon faked his own death. What followed was a roller-coaster ride that lasted four years, across five different countreis before he was finally arrested in 2005.
'How I faked my own death' is a story in Harry Gordon's own words. It reveals this thoughts and plans, his dealings with the law, his deception of family and crumbling marriage, his life under another identity and finally, remarrying in New Zealand. Harry's story will have you riveted.
Harry Gordon wrote his story while serving 15 months in prison.
