Mortido is a revenge tragedy, crime thriller and contemporary morality play all rolled into one.

It begins with a Mexican fable about death and ends in Sydney’s Western suburbs. In-between it takes in the Sydney police force, Qantas, quinoa, Berlin, Nazi Germany, Krispy Kreme donuts, Coca Cola, public housing, a seventh birthday party, the property market and a body in our country’s most famous Harbour. The connective tissue? Cocaine and a narrative with the power of a locomotive.
