In the late 1980's, Melbourne is gripped by an unprecedented crime wave, and has overtaken celebrity scandal as the talk of the town. In a bold move to increase flagging sales, the editor of Melbourne Truth appoints journalist Peter Clancy to head up an investigative crime column.
Clancy is quickly caught up in a sinister plot involving drug importation and police corruption, and crosses paths with a series of shady characters, some of whom are willing sources, and others with the skill of camouflage. Along the way, Clancy meets a young lawyer and is instantly besotted with her-despite his colleagues who see something disturbing beneath her wholesome exterior.
As Clancy falls into the murky underworld of Melbourne he attempts to discover if a series of murders are a turf war or a family feud. He must use his wits to expose the Thornydevils.... where nothing is as it seems.
Thornydevils heralds the much anticipated return of hard-living Melbourne Truth journalist, Peter Clancy.
