Tono kōrero mai

King's Cross is the hub of Sydney's nightlife. For the visitor its vice is its virtue. But behind the neon glare the lives of its prostitutes and drug addicts contain little glamour.

Ruth Dalley who spent two years helping the human casualties of King's Cross talks about her experiences. She found the chains of control and corruption extended into the police force itself. The inside knowledge she gained made her fear for her life, and leave the Cross.
