Review by: Julia Harwood on July 29, 2011 : (no rating)
This book was a very interesting look inside the justice system in Western Australia & shows the frustrations and triumphs of those trying to work with the system. It is a tribute to those who give their lives to helping others and to changing lives. A good read, highly recommend it.
