Kings Bloody Cross: The Underbelly Experience
PART OF THE VIVID FESTIVAL 2017
THE UNDERBELLY EXPERIENCE
Deborah Locke was a gutsy young city detective who began her career in 1984, working in the Kings Cross Drug Squad. Deborah witnessed widespread police corruption and bribery, involving crooked detectives associating freely with colourful members of Sydney’s underworld.
On her way to work, the prostitutes on Darlinghurst Road would tell her “I’ve already paid Sergeant so-and-so today…be careful of the blokes you are working with” an understatement which later led to Deborah risking her life to expose police corruption. Her bestselling book Watching the Detectives, inspired Nine’s television drama Underbelly: The Golden Mile.
