Description

Walking Towards Thunder by Peter Fox

Former Detective Chief Inspector Peter Fox is a hero. A police officer with 36 years' service in the Hunter region, he rose to national prominence in 2012 for his major role in speaking out for the victims of abuse within the church.  

His decision to become a whistle blower helped trigger Prime Minister Julia Gillard's historic decision to establish a far-reaching Royal Commission into the sexual abuse of children in institutions.  

Peter's dedication and focus cost him his career and his health.  But the victims and the families that he supported consider him their champion.  

Walking Towards Thunder is confronting, inspiring and an unforgettable story.
