True West By (author) David Whish-Wilson ISBN:9781925815702 A fast-paced and unsettling action thriller inspired by historical fact. The book captures Perth’s burgeoning Neo-Nazi movement in the late 1980s.


Western Australia, 1988. After betraying the Knights bikie gang, seventeen-year-old Lee Southern flees to the city with nothing left to lose.

Working as a rogue tow truck driver in Perth, he is captured by right-wing extremists whose combination of seduction and blackmail keeps him on the wrong side of the law and under their control.

As the true nature of what drives his captors unfolds, Lee becomes an unwilling participant in a breathtakingly ambitious plot – and a cold-blooded crime that will show just how much he, and everyone else, still has to lose.
