WHEN SOMEBODY SWINDLED THE PERTH MINT OUT OF GOLD WORTH OVER HALF A MILLION DOLLARS IN 1982, LOCAL POLICE THOUGHT THEY HAD CAUGHT THE OFFENDERS.

The Mickelberg brothers, Ray, Peter and Brian, were their prime suspects.  They were charge and convicted despite the fact the gold was never found, and before the trial had even commenced were also charged with defrauding millionaire Alan Bond with a counterfeit gold nugget.

For more than 25 years Australia watched as the Mickelbergs fought to prove their innocence.  This is the story of the battle.  It is a gripping account of the courtroom drama that captivated the public during an era of crooked cops and corporate fraud.  Along the way Brian Mickelberg lost his life in a mysterious aircraft crash, and two corrupt officers, deluded that their corruption was in a noble cause, met violent and untimely ends.

An exciting incisive, well balanced work by an eminent legal scholar, now Member of Parliament.  This story brings all the pieces together in a clear, concise manner. 
- John Quigley, Shadow Attorney-General (WA) and former Western Australian Police Union lawyer
