About the Author

Patrick Kennedy grew up in a staff house next to Long Bay gaol, where a 6 in backyard cricket meant climbing the outer wall. His parents worked there as medical staff. In the Ambulance Service of NSW he was one of Australia's first Intensive Care Paramedics and later ran the Media Unit. This work took him to crime scenes in and out of the prison, including the Viking Tavern where multiple ambulances carried off members of the Bandidos gang destined for the cells. Long Bay is his fourth book.
