Author Talk - Belinda Neil at Rockdale Library

Council Presents a talk by                                                                          
Belinda Neil introducing
Under Siege
About The Book
 Belinda Neil lived and breathed her job as a homicide investigator, undercover drugs cop and hostage negotiator with the NSW police force. As a negotiator, Belinda often found herself on cliff edges, waiting in doorways or out amongst the elements, persuading the murderous and suicidal to drop their weapons, stop terrorising their families, step back from the edge. Over time the horrors that she saw began to take their toll.
 Under Siege shows us the remarkable job our police perform and their endurance and courage in impossible circumstances. More that that, this courageous memoir reveals how the daily trauma and stress affected Belinda’s roles as wife and mother and how she fought back against the terrifying post-traumatic stress disorder that resulted.
