    The definitive account of an era that changed Queensland society - a searing story of greed, crime and corruption.

    'It was the genius of the system.... From day to day you didn't know who was on the take or not. You didn't know who you could trust.'

    Three Crooked Kings is the shocking true story of Queensland and how a society was shaped by almost half a century of corruption. At its core is Terence Murray Lewis, deposed and jailed former police commissioner. From his entry into the force in 1949, Lewis rose through the ranks, becoming part of the so-called Rat Pack with detectives Glendon Patrick Hallahan and Tony Murphy under the guiding influence of Commissioner Frank Bischof.

    The next four decades make for a searing tale of cops and killings, bagmen and blackmail, and sin and sleaze that exposes a police underworld which operated from Queensland and into New South Wales.

    This gripping story exposes the final pieces of the puzzle, unearths new evidence on cold cases, and explores the pivotal role that whistle-blower Shirley Brifman, prostitute and brothel owner, played until her sudden death.

    Based on extensive and unprecedented access to Terry Lewis and his personal papers as well as hundreds of interviews with key players and conspirators, award-winning journalist and novelist Matthew Condon has crafted the definitive account of an era that changed a state and is still reverberating to this day.

    Schizophrenic Writing Style

    I really wanted to finish the last few hours of this book because of the subject. It's impossible to follow because of the writer's propensity to continuously jump from one quote to another or from one time frame or location to another without lending any decent amount of informative writing so that the listener can make the appropriate connections. It's like looking at a bunch of Legos on the floor and trying to imagine what they make when put together.
    Horrible writing. The narrator did a great job with what he had to work with.
    Avoid this title at all costs.
