This book is about violent crime in Australia. It is about the atrocities which shatter peace and lives.
This book is about violence. It is about bombs - the heavy artillery of the criminal world - which shatter peace, and lives, and individuals, often indiscriminately. It is about guns, without which such atrocities as the Port Arthur and Strathfield massacres would not have occurred. And it is about knives which, when all else fails, are the ultimate resort of the villain.
