Matthew Condon - All Fall Down

“It was the genius of the system . . . From day to day you didn't know who was on the take or not. You didn't know who you could trust.”

With Three Crooked Kings and Jacks and Jokers, Brisbane journalist Matthew Condon gripped the nation with his no-holds-barred investigation of police corruption in Queensland during the Bjelke-Petersen years.

The gripping finale to the trilogy, All Fall Down, offers an unprecedented insight into the Fitzgerald Inquiry and its aftermath, exploring the real story behind the dramatic exit of Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen. Drawing from interviews with key players who have, until now, been afraid to speak publicly, All Fall Down celebrates the bravery of those unsung heroes who risked everything to expose the truth.

Join Condon and journalist Paul Bongiorno over a glass of wine in the bookshop as they discuss power, corruption, and the changed face of Australian politics.
