Softcover. 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. In this book the author heads a team of leading investigative journalists to provide an enthralling account of the nature of violent crime in Australia.
