Product description

Review

"This book captures the gritty reality of the life of Brian 'The Skull' Murphy, almost the last of the 'old school' coppers. The legend of 'The Skull' lives on in this unique book."
-Robin Bowles, award-winning true crime writer, Australia's True Crime Queen

"A very compelling insight into the [Victorian] Police Force of yesterday ... I kept thinking of what Winston Churchill said in the British Parliament: The opposition occupies the benches in front of you, but the enemy sits behind you.""
-Les Twentyman; National youth advocate
