Sydney: Allen & Unwin. 232 pp. Paperback octavo, very good condition. Colin Dillon is an extraordinary man. He was the first Indigenous policeman in Australia. But that is actually a very small part of his story. He was also the first serving police officer to voluntarily appear before the Fitzgerald Commission of Inquiry in 1987 and give first-hand evidence of police corruption. His evidence was instrumental in eventually sending some police, including Police Commissioner Terry Lewis, and politicians to prison. Revealing, powerful and uncompromising, this is the story of Colin Dillon's nearly 40 years in a police force rotten to the core. It describes the extraordinary range of criminal activities - drugs, gaming, SP bookmaking, brothels, vehicle theft - that were allowed to operate with impunity in return for bribes. It also tells of the high price an honest man and his family paid for his decision to break the code of silence. ISBN: 9781760290580. Our Book No: 17002. $18 AUD.

Described by George French Angas in 1844 as "truly a wild and desolate place", the Coorong is undeniably one of the most magnificent areas in South Australia.

Shipwrecks, murders, attacks by the Aboriginal inhabitants on the white explorers and settlers, and attacks by white colonists on the Aborigines also made the Coorong one of the most violent regions of the South Australian colony. Drawing mostly on original sources, provides an insight into the sometimes harsh and desperate conditions faced by the Europeans attempting to populate "that lonely shore", and the inevitable conflicts with the original inhabitants.
