In 1984, Deborah Locke graduated as a constable in the NSW Police Force. Young, blonde and pretty, she looked forward to her life as a copper. But within a year she was already being drawn in to the dark circle of police corruption in Sydneyâ€s underworld. The lines between cops and crims were blurred. Bribery and corruption, substance abuse and sexual harassment were commonplace. After working her way to Detective Senior Constable, Locke enters dangerous territory when she decides to blow the whistle on her crooked colleagues... This is the story of a gutsy young woman who stayed true to what she believed in no matter the cost.
