Publisher's Summary

It's closing time in the Queensland underworld. 

Last Drinks is brilliant, suspenseful and masterfully written. 

It's a decade since the infamous Inquiry into corruption tore the state of Queensland apart. But for George Verney, disgraced journalist and bit player in the great scandals of his day, the Inquiry has never quite finished. After 10 years of self-imposed exile, drawn by the terrible death of a man who was his friend, he reluctantly returns to Brisbane, the city of his downfall. 

In a town he no longer recognises, and through an underworld that has forgotten him, George must seek out the other hidden survivors of his times, to confront the truth about their common past.

fascinating, moving, highly recommended

Compelling and sensitive reading by Zappa. I was surprised by how deeply moved I was by this book & by the exploration of character, and the wonderful settings in Queensland and the long shadows of the Moonlight state
