July, 1925 -- a young woman lies dead in a Carlton alley. Roused
from his bed in the middle of a cold July night, Senior Constable
Fess Jordan stands in a nearby cobbled lane, one of those that make
up the notorious network known as The Narrows, off Elgin Street,
Carlton in Melbourne. The Narrows had seen more than its share of
crime. More recently, the area had become known as Vendetta
Country, the place where the back-street gangs feuded with bricks
and bottles. Now it had sunk to a new level of depravity - the site
for the murder of an innocent young woman from a good family.
Despite his twenty years in the Force, Fess finds he has more to
learn, and not just about this murder: the allure of crime for
some, the twisted motives of others, the reach of corruption and,
closer to home, hidden family truths.
