Description
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. Peter Fox’s 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.  He and his family were threatened. But the victims and the families that he supported consider him their champion.   Meet Peter Fox and hear about his confronting, inspiring and an unforgettable story -  "Walking Towards Thunder". Macleans Booksellers will be at the event and books will be available for purchase and signing
