Book Description

In 1969 a home-made bomb explodes in the sleazy heart of Brisbane's Fortitude Valley, killing eleven people and igniting a controversy that could threaten the government itself. When small time criminal Johnny Arnold is charged, his fight for justice sets two men - father, then son - on a collision course with the state's most powerful men. Nyst's powerful tale of corruption, idealism and personal courage, spans two decades of dark political intrigue and sensational courtroom drama. Chris Nyst is a top Queensland criminal lawyer. This is his first novel and he draws on his high profile career to weave a tale of treachery and double dealing in Australia's north. A powerful and original debut work from an author with many books to come.
