Summary
In Three Crooked Kings we read about the shocking true story of Queensland and how a society was shaped by almost half a century of corruption. In Jacks and Jokers the story continued with Terry Lewis taking the reins as police commissioner, while corruption at the highest levels of the police and government thrived. All Fall Down is the final gripping instalment in this best-selling trilogy, with more corruption, colourful new characters and bad behaviour outside the law by the law. It charts the dramatic demise of police commissioner Terry Lewis, signalling an end to 'The Joke' and the infamous 'crooked kings'. It also reveals for the first time the true story of events leading up to the Fitzgerald Inquiry in the late 1980s, courtesy of interviews with several key players who have, until now, remained silent. As well as the dramatic exit of Queensland's longest serving Premier Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen, All Fall Down captures the resilience and spirit of those unsung heroes who risked all to finally tell the truth about the extent of crime and corruption thriving in the Sunshine State. With exclusive details from unpublished interviews, All Fall Down gives an account of what went on inside the mind of Lewis during a decade in prison, and what has become of the key players in this sweeping saga that embroiled the police force, the judiciary and the politicians whose actions changed a state forever. While many would fall - it was not always the people who should
