Charlie Bezzina was one of Victoria's top Homicide detectives. In his 17 years in the Homicide Squad, he investigated more than 300 suspicious deaths, including 150 murders - among them the crimes of serial killer Paul Denyer, the killing of Melbourne gangland figure Alphonse Gangitano, the baffling disappearance of former gameshow model Jacquie Ramchen, and the death of former Test cricketer David Hookes.
This is the never-before-told story of Bezzina's rise from a sheltered childhood in a Maltese family in Melbourne's western suburbs; to a widely respected senior detective who served Victoria Police with distinction and unquestioned integrity for 37 years, culminating in his highly controversial departure from the Force.
Brimming with exclusive insights that only a seasoned detective can provide, The Job is an explosive and intriguing account of what it takes to be a criminal investigator at the highest level.

As a current serving member this book provides inspiration and motivation into great detective work. If only more of the Force was as values lead we would be in a much better place now. I could not out the book down, written so relatable and captivating !
Victoria is lucky to have had you
I can’t put in to words the gratitude I have for you and your family. Day in day out you put yourself on the line for all of us Victorian’s and you can’t possibly be thanked enough
Great insight into the career of a respected homicide squad detective. Finishing with very disappointing treatment by police command.
