In 1969 a home-made bomb explodes in the sleazy heart of Brisbane's Fortitude Valley, killing eleven people and igniting a controversy that could threaten the government itself. When small time criminal Johnny Arnold is charged, his fight for justice sets two men - father, then son -  on a collision course with the state's most powerful men.

Nyst's powerful tale of corruption, idealism and personal courage, spans two decades of dark political intrigue and sensational courtroom drama.
