A powerful story of life under fire and one man's journey back from the brink.

Grant Edwards was once an elite athlete, Olympics qualifier and Australia’s strongest man. His Guinness Book of Records feats of strength were acclaimed internationally, and as a high ranking police officer he spent decades protecting vulnerable people around the world. But nothing could shield him from catastrophic harm in the line of duty.

Rising above his tough beginnings in 1970s suburbia, Edwards found sanctuary in elite sport. But he found his true calling with the Australian Federal Police, rising swiftly through the ranks to Commander and personally establishing cybercrime units to fight child exploitation and human trafficking. A highly sought after and disciplined security advisor for governments around the world such as East Timor, Afghanistan and the Americas, Edwards was considered the last person to ‘crack’ – but a narrow escape from a deadly attack in Kabul pushed him to breaking point.

This is the story of an extraordinary man and his extraordinary battle back from the brink.

Industry Reviews

“A brave, life-affirming book from a brave man. Grant Edwards’s book works as a thriller, an adventure story, social history and self-help guide. Anyone struggling with the battle that goes on between our two ears will find comfort and help in Grant’s words.”
Gordon Peake, Political Advisor/Academic

"As a Foreign Diplomat I have had the honour and privilege of seeing Grant working in different nations, cultures, and languages where there are no barriers for his noble dedication: to make the world a better one for us all. He is truly a citizen of the world."
Fernando de la Cerda Bickford, Deputy Ambassador, Embassy of Guatemala

“Not only is Grant Edwards a respected leader in law enforcement in both hemispheres, he is also an acclaimed athlete, world record holder and mentor to many across the globe who suffer from the debilitating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Grant Edwards is a champion of the highest order and a gentleman to boot. Along with my family, I am proud to call him a friend.”
Harry Mitchell, Co-founder Tartan Warriors

"It is compelling, at times it is frightening, and at times sad. But it is also a wonderfully good read."
Andrew Colvin, Commissioner of the Australian Federal Police
