'Armed robber Pope Cody is on the run from a gang of renegade detectives who want him dead.

'As revenge killings and paybacks explode onto Melbourne streets, seventeen-year-old J finds himself at the centre of a bloody struggle between his family and the police. J is forced to navigate his way past slippery lawyers, corrupt cops and a paranoid and vengeful underworld.

'To survive he must learn how the game is played and choose his place in the animal kingdom. He must work out where he fits.' (From the publisher's website.)
