La Mama

Broken River

An exciting fictional expose of the dark heart of evil lying beneath the surface of crime and its policing in present-day Melbourne. 

The dismembered body of Junie Patel is discovered in a shallow grave in country VictoriaDetective Sergeant Peter Rowstone of Major Crime pins criminal Marlene Corchoran as the prime suspect. But there are many questions to answer. What was Rowstone doing at Broken River the night Patel was murdered? Is Rowstone’s investigation revealing the dark heart of the crime or is it an elaborate conspiracy? Who and what is ‘The Brotherhood’, the secret organisation of powerful men who engage in depraved rituals at an isolated lodge in north-eastern Victoria?
