NEW FORMAT. First released in October 2010, The Job - Fighting Crime from the Frontline, is out now in B-format paperback.
Charlie Bezzina was one of Victoria's top Homicide detectives. In his 17 years in the Homicide Squad, he investigated more than 300 suspicious deaths, including 150 murders - among them the crimes of serial killer Paul Denyer, the killing of Melbourne gangland figure Alphonse Gangitano, the baffling disappearance of former gameshow model Jacqui Ramchen, and the death of former Test cricketer David Hookes.
Brimming with exclusive insights that only a seasoned detective can provide, The Job is an explosive and intriguing account of what it takes to be a criminal investigator at the highest level.
Nominated for Best True Crime book in the 2011 Ned Kelly Awards.
"Bezzina has a high reputation as a straight arrow. The thrill here is the contrast between the starkness of his copper war stories and the tender decency of his family life." Helen Garner, The Age
