Ellen Kelly was born during the troubles in Ireland. When she arrived in Melbourne in 1841 aged nine, British convict ships were still dumping their unhappy cargo in what was then known as the colony of New South Wales. When she died at the age of 91 in 1923, having outlived seven of her 12 children, motor cars plied the highway near her bush home north of Melbourne, and Australia was a modern sovereign nation.

Sympathy for the Devil reveals what the 1994 Wood Royal Commission into police corruption wasn't told. The depth, nature and extent of the corruption revealed in the NSW police force by the Wood Royal Commission was astounding and appalling. Much of what was learned came from police officers who 'rolled over'. One of the first was Trevor Haken, who now lives in hiding, afraid for his life. But Sympathy for the Devil goes beyond his evidence to the Commission.
