In the tradition of his bestselling CURTIN and CHIFLEY, David Day's exhaustive biography of one of our most fascinating prime ministers. Paul Keating was one of the most significant political figures of the late twentieth century, firstly as treasurer for eight years and then Prime Minister for five years. Although he has spent all of his adult life in the public eye, Keating has eschewed the idea of publishing his memoirs and has discouraged biographers from writing about his life. Undaunted, best-selling biographer David Day has taken on the task of giving Keating the biography that he deserves. Based on extensive research in libraries and archives, interviews with Keating's former colleagues and associates, and walking the tracks of Keating's life, Day has painted the first complete portrait of Paul Keating, covering both the public and private man.

The most controversial cop in Australian history, in his own words. Roger Rogerson hasn't been a police officer for more than 20 years. Yet his name makes him, the most well-known 'detective-sergeant' in Australia. He has been the subject of articles, appearances, profiles and books; portrayed in TV dramas; and recorded by covert listening devices at home for months. Rogerson took up his own pen in prison. Out, he walked the club and pub speaking circuit, where he found a ready audience for his tales of law and mayhem. He now writes for newspapers. Here, he tells us of: - high profile investigations; - forgotten ones, like when a key from Tassie opened a Sydney murderer's door; - some of the most interesting dead people he's ever met; - the hunt for desperados on a deadly robbing spree; - the bloody night that earned him the award for courageous action; - meeting a prominent toe cutter; - besieging the comic Wally and the dangerous Green Man; - the dogs in a prison he sojourned in; - bad days in a flattened railcarriage at Granville... and more... These untold tales are the ones everyone else has glossed over or ignored, from the horse's mouth, for the first time.
