Softcover. On July 19, 1995, two young men stumbled upon a partially clothed skeleton, wearing lingerie, high-heeled boots and jewellery, in a disused mineshaft near Bonnie Doon, Victoria, Australia. The sensational find was identified as the remains of transsexual Melbourne prostitute Adele Baily, who had been missing for more than 17 years. How did Adele Baily die, and why was her body hidden in a forgotten mineshaft? Was there a connection between Adele Baily and country housewife Jenny Tanner who had been killed on a nearby property? The police thought so. They believed the connection was one of their own former members, who was Jenny Tanner's brother-in-law and one of Australia's most notorious policemen, Detective Sergeant Denis Tanner. The author delves into the sordid 1970s underworld in which Adele Baily lived and Denis Tanner worked; a world of drugs, prostitution and corruption, where cops and robbers played by the same unwritten rules. The murderers were not found - but they are known. Will justice prevail and the guilty be prosecuted. Until then, there will be no justice for the innocent. Illus. + Cast of Characters. 318pp. 8vo. softcover. Vg+
