Description - The Cross by Mandy Sayer

I looked out my window one morning and there she was, Gina Delgado, dressed up like a peacock in her high heels and all, standing between my front gate and a moving bulldozer, with her arms and legs apart in this sort of over my dead body pose, see?

An inner-city community is under threat from the developers and their crooked friends. One woman leads the battle against them, a battle fought in nightclubs and council chambers, in hotel rooms and high on rooftops.

Eleven characters reveal their memorable, interweaving lives and deaths in this passionate and controversial novel.

Buy The Cross by Mandy Sayer from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
