About the Book
When somebody swindled the Perth Mint out of gold worth more than half a million dollars - local police thought they had the culprits. The Mickelberg brothers, Ray, Peter and Brian, were their prime suspects. Already accused of defrauding millionaire Alan Bond by manufacturing a phony gold nugget, the Mickelbergs were tried and convicted despite the fact that the gold was never found. For more than 28 years Australia watched as the Mickelbergs fought to prove their innocence. Brothers is a gripping account of a courtroom drama that titillated the public during an era of crooked cops and corporate fraud. Along the way Brian Mickelberg lost his life in a mysterious aircraft crash and two corrupt officers met violent and untimely ends.
