Description

When Simon Illingworth joined the Victorian Police Force, he wanted only to help the community. But because he spoke out against a corrupt sergeant, he was isolated, threatened and bashed by some of his colleagues. Undaunted by this intimidation, he spent four years working for Police Internal Affairs, weeding out crooked police. He received many commendations and brought successful prosecutions against corrupt officers. But the work took its toll and in May 2004, depressed and discouraged, he risked everything to tell his inside story to Australian Story. this book is a unique insight into the frightening world of Melbourne's gangland killings and police corruption. It is told by a whistleblower who, like Deborah Lee Locke, the author of Watching the Detectives staunchly believes that, if honest citizens stand up to be counted, good will always defeat evil.
