Paul Verhoeven's ex-cop dad, John, spent years embroiled in some of the seediest, scariest intrigue and escapades imaginable. One day John offered Paul the chance of a lifetime: he'd spill his guts on tape. Electric Blue spans the final years of John's stint in the New South Wales police force, in the grimy, analytical world of forensics. Paul unpicks his father's most terrible cases. There was the case of a rapist hiding in the walls of shower block, a body that was quite literally cooked and the bizarre copycat suicides. But what's it actually like to have a heroic ex-cop as a Dad? Paul and John delve into their unique father son relationship and how they ended up so different to each other. They figure out how to deal with the choices they've made or wish they'd made. And Paul's mum, Christine, reveals what it was like to be a pioneering female cop in the 80s when misogyny was rife in the force.
