Shark arm : a shark, a tattooed arm and two unsolved murders [ebook]

Roope, Phillip2020
An ex-boxer and petty police informer was efficiently disposed of, sending a ghastly warning to others. That would have been the end of it, had not a shark, in a million to one chance, vomited up the victim's arm in an aquarium and shone an unwelcome light into some very dark places. With so much at stake, the guilty closed ranks and gradually, with intimidation and money, and the murder of a mate who they feared would betray them, they re-imposed their control and the light was turned off again. The memory of those events, and the terrible fear they inspired, kept those who knew the truth silent unto the grave. Although many people have written about the shark arm murder, Phillip Roope and Kevin Meagher are the first to have access to the original police records.
