Fighting Crime From the FrontlineBook - 2010
Charlie Bezzina was one of Victoria's top homicide detectives. In his 17 years in the Homicide Squad, he investigated more than 300 suspicious deaths, including 150 murders - among them the crimes of serial killer Paul Denyer: the killing of Melbourne gangland figure Alphonse Gangitano, the baffling disappearances of former game show model Jacquie Ramchen and Sarah McDiarmid, and the death of former Test cricketer David Hookes. This is the never-before-told story of Bezzina's rise from a sheltered childhood in a Maltese family in Melbourne's western suburbs to a widely respected senior detective who served Victoria Police with distinction and unquestioned integrity for 37 years, culminating in his acrimonious and highly controversial departure from the force. The Job is an explosive and intriguing account of what it takes to be a criminal investigator at the highest level.
