Andrew Rule's Biography

Writer and reporter Andrew Rule has written, edited and published more than 30 true crime books – including the best-selling Underbelly series with John “Sly of the Underworld” Silvester. Their work inspired the hit Underbelly television drama on Melbourne’s gangland war.


Andrew Rule has broken or covered some of the most notorious Australian stories of the late 20th Century and lived to tell the tale. His work includes critically-acclaimed accounts of murder and its detection. In 1996, he broke the Tanner case, which resulted in an inquest finding being quashed and a serving policeman being named as a killer by the State Coroner. He wrote and narrated A Death in the Family, a one-hour documentary about the Tanner case that won a Logie and was a finalist in the Australian Film Industry awards.
After starting in country newspapers, he wrote variously for The Age, The Herald, The Sun and The Sunday Age and Good Weekend magazine before becoming deputy editor of The Sunday Age in 2007. He was headhunted by the Herald Sun as writer at large in early 2011. He has won many national journalism awards … and claims to be the only Australian Journalist of the Year to have ridden the winner of a horse race.
