Summary
When I walked through the office door each day, I knew that almost every decision I made would make someone unhappy... Frank & fearless is a forthright account of some of the toughest cases faced by Nicholas Cowdery during his time as Director of Public Prosecutions for New South Wales. The headline-grabbing criminal trials of Gordon Wood, Keli Lane and Jeffrey Gilham (who pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of his brother and was tried for the murders of his parents in 1993) are examined with forensic precision, along with the DPP's contentious decision not to prosecute artist Bill Henson and members of The Chaser
