King of the Cross is a dazzling novel that explores the criminal world of Jacob Mendoza: legendary Godfather of Kings Cross and for more than four decades, Australia's most powerful and notorious crime figure.  Now in his eighties, Mendoza believes it's time to record his epic life story - although finding a competent writer is never easy.  As Mendoza unfolds his seductive story of thugs and drugs, murders and mysteries, bikers, bent cops and girls, girls, girls, it emerges that he's not the only one with a past.  And the memoir takes shape, other more terrifying criminals are circling the kingdom that Mendoza built.
