About the Book

Awarded the AIA Seal of Excellence for Outstanding Fiction, and the prestigious B.R.A.G. Medallion, Flank street is an unforgettable novel from “One of the most distinct and exciting new voices in crime writing.

”A woman with a lust for money and danger…

A man with a hunger for risk and adrenaline…

Can they con the Sydney underworld and get away with murder?

Or will they both end up dumped in a dark alley?

No one can be believed. No one can be trusted.

Welcome to King’s Cross…"

When Micky DeWitt sails into Sydney, Australia, his only assets are a run down yacht, his wits, and the skills he’s picked up as a dedicated career criminal.Shiftless, cynical and dishonest, even with himself, Micky takes a job as a barman in Sydney's seedy red light district of Kings Cross. He’s a chameleon, seeing himself as both master criminal and chilled-out world sailor. He wants a life on Easy Street, is driven by the desire to ‘get away with it,’ and addicted to the adrenaline rush that comes with that life.

Carol Todd is turned on by money and risk-taking. For Carol, there’s no such thing as “enough”. Being an escort to a few wealthy clients is just a means to an end. A couple of underworld connections help, too. But what she needs for her latest con is a fall guy—someone she can use and lose once she’s done with him. And Micky DeWitt looks like the perfect man to fall into her sultry, seductive honey trap.

Playing to Micky’s twisted sense of chivalry, Carol leads him into a hedonistic free-fall. As Micky’s life spins out of control it doesn’t take long to graduate from burglary to arson, then accessory to murder. And no matter which way he moves, someone’s going to get hurt… or die.

What readers are saying:

"Suspenseful, pithy, unpredictable, and laced with black humour, Flank Street perfectly captures the mood of Sydney’s criminal underworld."

"Bloody bold, and brilliant!"

"The dialogue is short, sharp, and terse, with just the right amount of street talk to make Flank Street a compelling read for fans of hard-boiled crime fiction."

"This book is a page-turner for anyone who likes noir thrillers/mysteries."

About the Author

Since 1979, A.J Sendall has been collecting experiences, people, and places. From war-torn Uganda, the polluted dust bowls of the Sahara, or the pristine ice-floes of the Antarctic he has gathered and filed them away. Some of those characters recently squeezed through the bars of insecurity and are now at large in the pages of his first three novels. Others await their future fates.

After three decades of 'living it up', it is now time for Sendall to write it down. Not as another dry travelogue or memoir, but as action packed thrillers based on real life experiences.
