Fox by Bill Robertson
From the cover: Colin Fox is an enigma. Part Scottish, part Aboriginal, as a child he is caught up in the Stolen Generation. What follows is a period of abuse and sorrow but Fox’s innate sense of decency and justice sees him not only survive but become a respected SAS warrior. However fate deals Fox another bitter blow with the murder of his adopted family. Bikie gangs, gun running, dog fighting, and a mind that is pure evil cross his path in his quest for justice. Ultimately, Fox decides on the only law he can trust – his own.
Bill Robertson, a retired Assistant Commissioner of the Victoria Police, draws on his depth of police experience and indigenous research to provide readers with an intriguing tale. He masterfully tells the story of Colin Fox, a courageous and resilient young man who lives between two cultures. After residing in a few missions in Western Australia then going walkabout, Fox became part of a boxing troupe by the age of seventeen - he was a great fighter. As fate would have it, he reacquaints with one of the few authority figures who ever showed sincere kindness to him as a child - Caroline Connors, a policewoman with the West Australian police. Caroline and her family became instrumental in Fox joining the army. He was a gallant and clever fighter who later becomes a lethal SAS warrior. During this tale, there are other dark forces at play and what unfolds is both numbing, intriguing and horrific. It is a tale of bravery, resilience, revenge and persecution to the highest order.
