Based around a single incident from converging viewpoints, this punchy book gives an insight into Sydney's multicultural society, in particular working-class Mt Druitt (the book takes its title from the suburb's postcode). Don't expect suspense and don't expect plot - this is more about a social situation. But it's packaged well and sustains pace and interest. A quick edit would tidy up some little glitches, but these don't detract from this fine effort.

This is a gritty, fast paced book with characters that I think we can all relate to. The action stems from a single spontaneous act by an Indian immigrant, and the result encompasses the whole community in one way or another. Each chapter is nearly a story in its own right, but with enough interest for the reader to want to find out more, to wonder what would have happened if..... A very enjoyable, if at times somewhat disturbing read which jolts the reader out of the complacency of their own comfortable existence and makes them stop and think, what would would I have done?
