FLANK STREET

Summary

A woman with a lust for money and danger… A man with a hunger for risk and adrenaline… Can they con the Sydney underworld and get away with murder? Or will they both end up dumped in a dark alley? When Micky DeWitt sails into Sydney, Australia, his only assets are a run down yacht, his wits, and the skills he’s picked up as a dedicated career criminal. Shiftless, cynical and dishonest, Micky takes a job as a barman in Sydney's seedy red light district. He’s a chameleon, seeing himself as both master criminal and chilled-out world sailor. He wants a life on Easy Street, is driven by the desire to ‘get away with it,’ and addicted to the adrenaline rush that comes with that life. Carol Todd is turned on by money and risk-taking. For Carol, there’s no such thing as “enough”. Being an escort to a few wealthy clients is just a means to an end. A couple of underworld connections help, too. But what she needs for her latest con is a fall guy—someone she can use and lose once she’s done with him. And Micky DeWitt looks like the perfect man to fall into her sultry, seductive honey trap. Playing to Micky’s twisted sense of chivalry, Carol leads him into a hedonistic free-fall. As Micky’s life spins out of control it doesn’t take long to graduate from burglary to arson, then accessory to murder. And no matter which way he moves, someone’s going to get hurt… or die.

Prologue

Yellow streetlights lined Flank Street. I walked in the shadow of the plane trees: Black 501s and a grey hoodie. Outside number 67, I stopped, leaned against a tree, and waited. I craved the caress of nicotine, but the glow would expose me.

No lights in the house, no car in the driveway, no sound; an hour passed, still nothing. An hour and twenty, and a Green Holden Monaro pulled into the drive. He climbed out; I stood still. His face, his name, his height and build I knew. I also knew he’d crossed somebody enough to get whacked, and that was where I came in. Third night of surveillance: same routine, always alone, briefcase in the left hand, keys in the right. Lock the car: check it. Get the mail from the box: straight to the house. The sound of the lock, then a chain.

Cross the road, down the drive, vault the gate into the back yard. Kitchen window: make a noise to draw him close. A face in the window and a spit from the silenced nine—job’s right!

My name’s Micky DeWitt. I arrived in Australia five years ago, broke and scratching for work. Now I have a nice apartment, a fast car, and own a boat repair yard. The yard pays the guys’ wages, but could never keep me the way I like to live. I hang out there because I like being beside the water. I have three workers on the dock and slipway that I pay above award, and a secretary in the office that I screw after hours. I live well, play hard, and call no-one boss.

This is how I got there.
