Description:
King of the Cross is crime fiction unlike any other. Mark Dapin's award-winning novel depicts the world of Jacob Mendoza: ruler of Kings Cross and, for more than forty years, Australia's most powerful and infamous crime figure. Now in his eighties, Mendoza decides to employ a hapless young journalist to ghostwrite his memoir. As Mendoza reveals his epic life of thugs and drugs, murders and mayhem, crooked cops and girls, girls, girls, it appears that he's not the only one with a past. And as his story develops, other more terrifying criminals are circling the kingdom that Mendoza built.
