The Book Bank stocks Lingering Doubts - Going inside Brisbane's Arcade Murder

The Book Bank has recently re-located from Toowong Village to their spacious new outlet at 48 Jephson Street, Toowong. The Book Bank has also just sold their 20th copy of Lingering Doubts!

It was always important to us that the facts behind our grandfather's arrest would, one day, reach residents from Brisbane's Toowong, St Lucia and Taringa. Reg Brown grew up on Stanley Terrace and, once married, he and his family called St Lucia home. Our grandmother's parents were pioneers of Toowong and their iconic grocery store, Cocks & Sons, forms part of Toowong's history. (see The Cocks Family Tree published by Toowong and District Historical Society).

Lingering Doubts exists to give our grandfather a voice, something denied him, from the moment he was arrested by Brisbane detectives, Stewie Kerr (later Comptroller-General of Prisons) and Frank Bischof (later Police Commissioner).
