Summary
'David Edge is a Chinese Whisper.' So Constable Carol Porter is informed while digging into one of Edge's cold cases, unsure whether she's investigating the crime, the crim or the cop. To his former Homicide colleagues, he's the star detective who went bad, or pretended to, while undercover. According to rumour, he's the ex-cop who killed notorious hitman 'Whitey' Poynter and took over crime lord Jack Barker's enterprises. To the ladies of The Rose Garden and The Crimson Grotto, he's the Big Boss, a gentleman who looks after them better than Barker did. To the tough-as-nails Maeve Maguffin, booted off the force for making a pass at her female superior, he's the former rookie who occasionally puts work her way. To the kids at the drop-in centre, he's the mystery man who lives upstairs, teaches self-defence and for whom they gladly run errands. And to petty thief Ben Bovell, Edge is his only friend and his hero. When Ben walks into his daughter's day-care centre wearing a bomb, he will only negotiate with Edge - the one person he trusts to keep a terrible promise. In the aftermath, a cast of cops, crims, muscle for hire, sex workers, street kids and bystanders encounter Edge as he too delves into a past he'd prefer was undisturbed. Who is the real David Edge? David Edge is a Chinese Whisper..."
