“The story is set in Melbourne during WWII.
A murder/suicide is investigated by the homicide department, but it quickly becomes obvious that things are not how they've been set up.
Joe Sable, a young detective, gets involved in an investigation that follows a group of thugs heavily involved in National Socialism trying to make their way in the grey area of Australian politics of the time.
I've read others of Robert Gott's books that I've enjoyed more. The story is quite nasty and brutal and while the protagonists are interesting, you seem to be following caricatures of thugs around.
Interesting twist at the end though.”
