Self-confessed vampire Shane Chartres-Abbott was gunned down while standing trial for rape. His bizarre life and death prompted a secret murder investigation that would eventually end the careers of some of the most senior and experienced police officers in Australia. Don't Tell the Chief is a powerful foray into the world of police. It charts the rise and fall of the author, Stephen Linnell, whose 20-year journalism career came to an abrupt end after secretly recorded telephone conversations exposed lies, deceit and misguided loyalties. It takes the reader on a fascinating journey into the highly secretive world of police command and details, for the first time, the inner workings of government and police. It provides a first-hand account of the events leading up to the controversial Office of Police Integrity hearings that would abruptly end careers, friendships and reputations.
