Intrigue, corruption, murder — all from a controversial fiction right? Three Crooked Kings is a shocking true story of the police and government underworld that shaped Queensland for almost half a century. The expose tells tales of cops, killings and blackmail sourced from hundreds of interviews with former leaders, key personalities, criminals and whistleblowers. Award-winning author and journalist Matthew Condon presents new key evidence of the happenings based on interviews with Terry Lewis, the jailed former police commissioner. In his official diaries, Lewis unveils the truth on corrupt police officers, and his own life encounters and relationships with politicians between 1949 and 1976. Three Crooked Kings is a gripping read about a time when corruption in Queensland was entrenched.
