    "Superb!" Tony Reeves is a true master of his craft. This guy should be a household name the world over, and one day, no doubt will be!

    " Two Political Murders " In the pantheon of contemporary crime writing Tony Reeves has no equal in Australia. He is a walking encyclopedia on the subject of corrupt politicians, bent coppers and their mates in the criminal fraternity. Nothing escapes his eagle eye and his enquiring mind. Add an engaging writing style and meticulous research and the result is becoming a reference library to what may be Australia's major industry. He's been actively engaged thus for some four decades, so he's no "flash in the pan" although he achieved national recognition only recently with his ground-breaking books on Lennie McPherson and Abe Saffron, the Mr Big and Mr Sin of Sydney's crime scene. He followed those award-winning tomes with Getting Away With Murder, the first of a monumental trilogy, and he's done it again with his latest opus Two Political Murders. This is the story of axe murderer Jack Kelly, the last man to be hanged in New South Wales, whose execution proved to... More > be another exercise in political chicanery that is the norm thereabouts. Hence the title.It's a fascinating and colourful tale of the times with detail that will delight those who appreciate the finer points of such vital literary application. The case dates to 1938 but Tony's reportage gives it a sense of the contemporary. It might have happened yesterday.This is another landmark in the Reeves' lexicon, a classical expose of crime and consequence that should be read by all who value the craft of crime writing and the recounting of a gripping story whose implications reverberate to the present day.< Less
