Once upon a time in Melbourne there was a gigolo who thought he was a vampire. He bit the tongue off a prostitute and was then murdered in broad daylight on a suburban street. His execution, top brass believed, was organised by police. The aftershocks of this killingâ€”and the murder of a state witness and his wife inside their fortress home&mash;rocked the police force and the Parliament, vanquished one government and brought the next to its knees.
