About this product
- DescriptionJohn Habib is the mechanic son of a Muslim Lebanese-Australian crime family in Sydney's Western suburbs. His oldest brother is in a maximum security prison, his middle brother is becoming increasingly fundamentalist, and his younger brother Rafi is on trial for a murder he swears he didn't commit. John has reason to disbelieve Rafi but there are things going on in the family that he just doesn't understand. Why has his brother taken control of the family away from their father? Are the police really trying to set up Rafi? And what is the compelling evidence they say will put him away? John sets out to prove Rafi's incence in the face of his predatory older brothers and some Lebanese-hating cops. Bec Ralston is a good detective who doesn't kw why she's been ordered to attend Rafi's trial. She was previously thrown off the investigation for voicing the opinion that Rafi might be incent. As the court case goes badly wrong, she finds herself torn between her loyalty to the senior police she respects and the truth. Not since Peter Temple's The Broken Shore and Truth has the world of criminals and police been so uncompromisingly and authentically drawn. This brilliant, fast-paced vel will seize you from its first page and t let you go till long after its explosive, mind-twisting conclusion.
