Native English speakers, what does this mean?
"sinister fraternity of crime''
Could this simply means: "evil crime group" ?

"Fraternity" is a "brotherhood" which can be a specific group like a club. It also has a broader meaning of people who think alike or have something in common. For an example, "brothers in arms" is used to describe soldiers in the same platoon, or all soldiers in the world. It depends on context.
Likewise, "sinister fraternity of crime'' could mean a specific "evil crime group" like the Mafia, or just random people who have one thing in common: they are evil criminals.

That's pretty much it. Just a fancier way of saying it.
