Beams Falling is the brilliantly compelling second novel by rising star of Australian crime writing, Pam Newton. A portrait of Sydney's recent past, it is also a compulsive and utterly authentic insight into the way both cops and criminals work.
It is the early 1990s and as a long hot summer comes to an end, the violence in Sydney's western surburb of Cabramatta threatens to spiral out of control. Vietnamese drug gangs battle for supremacy, the police and politicians battle over who's to blame and then one humid afternoon shots ring out and a young boy in a school uniform lies dead. Detective Nhu 'Ned' Kelly, still wounded and recovering from her previous case, realises that just finding out who was responsible will not be enough, she needs to know why.
