Bestselling biography of murdered prostitute, Sallie-Anne Huckstepp. A powerful blend of biography and the detective novel, Huckstepp investigates the murder of a charismatic woman who has fascinated many Australians since she first appeared on national television to accuse New South Wales detectives of shooting her boyfriend, Warren Lanfranchi, in cold blood. Throughout her short life, Sallie-Anne Huckstepp lived a dangerous existence. This is a true story, brilliantly told, of a courageous woman who spoke out against corruption and murder. 'Sallie-Anne always wanted to be a star. If she couldn't make it in the straight world she was determined to make it in the underworld.' - Debra Krivoshow (Sallie's sister) 'I was very fond of Sallie. She had a doomed quality about her, I guess, tangled up with a sort of relishing of her own notoriety, an exaggerated fascination for the criminal milieu.' - Richard Neville 'A mythic figure. Very brave. Ultimately one of the great women.' - Martin Sharp Joint winner of 2000 Ned Kelly Award for Non-Fiction(shared with Andrew Rules for Underbelly).
