Summary
An ex-boxer and petty police informer was efficiently disposed of, sending a ghastly warning to others. That would have been the end of it, had not a shark, in a million to one chance, vomited up the victim's arm in an aquarium and shone an unwelcome light into some very dark places.With so much at stake, the guilty closed ranks and gradually, with intimidation and money, and the murder of a mate who they feared would betray them, they re-imposed their control and the light was turned off again. The memory of those events, and the terrible fear they inspired, kept those who knew the truth silent unto the grave.Although many people have written about the shark arm murder, Phillip Roope and Kevin Meagher are the first to have access to the original police records. Through careful investigation, they have unravelled an extraordinary tale of high-class smuggling around Sydney Harbour and police collusion, and the truth behind one of the most infamous cold cases in Australia. Except there were actually two gruesome murders..
Summary
It all started with a ruthless murder. An ex-boxer and petty police informer was efficiently disposed of, sending a ghastly warning to others. That would have been the end of it, had not a shark, in a million to one chance, vomited up the victim's arm in an aquarium and shone an unwelcome light into some very dark places. Others have written about the Shark Arm murder but Phillip Roope and Kevin Meagher, having digested the entire cold-case police file, reveal a very different story.
