Only Killers and Thieves, Hardback Book

Only Killers and Thieves Hardback



Tommy McBride and his brother Billy return to their isolated family home to discover that their parents have been brutally murdered.

Haunted and alone, their desperate search for the killers leads them to the charismatic but deadly Inspector Noone and his Queensland Native Police - an infamous arm of colonial power whose sole purpose is the 'dispersal' of Indigenous Australians in protection of settler rights. The retribution that follows will leave a lasting mark on the colony and the country it later becomes.

It will also devastate Tommy - and destroy his relationship with his brother, forever.
