Product Description

Product Description

Continuing on from the bestselling true crime stories Three Crooked Kings and Jacks and Jokers, All Fall Down follows Terry Lewis as he becomes police commissioner and the era of corruption at the highest levels of the police and government goes on. As the Queensland police become more connected with their corrupt colleagues in Sydney, the era of heavy drugs and crime also begins. Tony Murphy and Glen Hallahan, two of the original “crooked kings,” become more enmeshed with “The Joke” which is run by bagman Jack Herbert. All Fall Down introduces new characters, more extraordinary behavior outside the law by the law, and along the way it charts the meteoric rise of police commissioner Terry Lewis. But with the arrival of the Fitzgerald Inquiry in the late 1980s, many will fall—and it’s not always the people who should. Once again award-winning journalist and novelist Matthew Condon has drawn from unprecedented access to Terry Lewis, as well as hundreds of interviews with key players and conspirators to craft the definitive account of the rise—and spectacular fall—of one man, an entire state, and over a generation of corruption.

HASH(0xa1ad3450) out of 5 stars One thing I always enjoy with history is pictures and there were none March 7 2016

I've read all three of the books associated with the Queensland Police. I thought the first book and this last book told the whole sordid story quite well. I was a visitor to Brisbane around that time in the mid 80's visiting a friend who was working there at the time. I don't know that he was aware of the extent of the corruption. One thing I always enjoy with history is pictures and there were none. The newspapers must have had hundreds of them.

This book brings together the events described in the first two books and then adds more to make a comprehensive picture of the history of Queensland curruption, policing and politics from the 50s onwards. I couldn't put it down. It's a wake up call to all of the destructive power of corruption. Brilliant.

This was a real eye-opener. I'm 55 now, so when all this was happening in QLD (I was only interested in girls, music and my mates) it was just some "talking heads" on the news. Reading it now... to understand how bad things were... was just jaw-dropping. A great read!

An interesting tale about a sordid part of Queensland's history. Not great literature but well-researched and a fascinating dip into the Bjelke-Petersen years. How JBP didn't get locked up is beyond me!

A riveting, but depressing trek through the police and political corruption that led to Qld's Fitzgerald Inquiry.
