A Death In Custody
Sandy MeredithGet the e-book: $2.99
A fictional story based on true events.
'Blood on the streets as a town explodes' boomed the front page of the Sydney Morning Herald one winter's morning in 1987. Heavily armed police had been dispatched to quell a 'race riot' in a northern New South Wales town after yet another young Aboriginal man died in police custody. Intent on learning the real story behind the headlines, Lou Williams, aspiring investigative journalist, goes north. Each character she encounters - country and western singers, community elders, militants and mechanics - gives her a fragment of the truth. In A Death In Custody, these fragments combine into a mosaic stained with entrenched and deadly racism.
