Planet Jackson

#amreading Planet Jackson, Brad Norington

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

A change of format / style from all the crime fiction I've been reading lately - and a local true crime book about the goings on in the Health Services Union.

From the Blurb:

Kathy Jackson was hailed as a heroine for blowing the whistle on the million-dollar fraud of Michael Williamson, the corrupt boss of the Health Services Union. While remaining steadfast in this very public ordeal, she endured bitter personal attacks from enemies in the Labor Party and the union movement.

But what if Jackson was just as corrupt as Williamson? Or worse?
