Someone should take heartfelt pity on this poor wannabe writer and offer a proper education. However, if this is an example of what academia in OZ produces, heaven help the country. Kitt

A vicious, compelling and frightening story set amid the streets of Sydney. I found it hard to read and even harder to put down. I would say not for the squeamish or faint hearted, but I'm squeamish and feint hearted, first book I ever read like it. Fast and furious.
