Product description

Product Description

Political staffers close to the Premier of the Australian state of Queensland start turning up dead. Ex-cop Doug Morgan smells a rat, and so does crusading journalist Louise Prince. Together they begin to unravel the twisted knot which reveals a corrupt Police Minister, rampant intrusion of Japanese Yakuza crime bosses, and a trail of dirt which leads right to the top of the political stack. The stakes are higher than Morgan can imagine, and the chase leads all over Australia and even to Japan. Ultimately … only revenge will do!

3.0 out of 5 stars The makings of a great political thriller 23 July 2013
By John B. Biggs - Published on
Verified Purchase
Beatty is an intelligent politician but this must be his first novel. An interesting political thriller for a story but it is spoiled by the mistakes first novelists tend to make: stock characters, overly dramatic, irrelevant detail about different places, telling not showing, especially repeating phrases to make sure we get it, such as telling the reader over and over that “he was old enough to be her father”, Morgan’s “bulky frame” and so on, which should have been picked up by an editor. Each chaoter headed by italicised one sentence references to the Yakusa, which simply distract: I ignored them. The denouement is based on an unlikely coincidence. Beatty has obviously done his research on facts and figures but his depiction of Hobart for example is wrong in lived-in detail. There are too many punctuation and formatting errors. Could have been a ripper of a story, but sadly fails.
