    'Melbourne in the last decade of the millennium feels like a hard-boiled fiction or a noir film, with corruption in the air and on the ground. Six short stories and a novella circle the city's decay, spiral towards a thrilling conclusion and fuse into a new kind of crime fiction.

    'Vignettes of desire and disappointment resonate through a city whose airwaves and waterways are blighted by a toxic conglomerate, whose supermarkets and convenience stores are staked out by a killer, whose nights pulse with analogue television and staticky videotape, and whose past and future meet at the Flamingo Gate apartments.'
