Softcover. Like the Beaumont children and the Azaria Chamberlain cases before it, the backpacker murder case in Belanglo State Forest has entered Australian criminal folklore. Seven young people, most of them foreigners backpacking around Australia, brutally murdered, their remains uncovered in 1992 and 1993. It would take scores of police over 3yrs, countless hours of forensic investigation, thousands of false leads and a few precious clues to charge and convict Ivan Milat for their horrific deaths. This book is the definitive work on Ivan Milat, his family and the murders. Almost 4yrs in the making, informed by exclusive interviews with members of the Milat family, key police investigators and Crown lawyers, the authors reveals a family culture so bizarre it would lead inexorably to murder. The book also scrutinises the police investigation - its remarkable success and failures, the dramatic turning point and the backbiting and bitterness that followed Milat's arrest. Thought-provoking, totally unsalacious, an exploration of the darker side of Australian life as a whole, this is a detailed and gripping read - a psychological thriller come to life. Illus. + Epilogue, End Notes and Index. 533pp. 8vo softcover. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. with no creasing to covers. A fairly heavy book which may require additional postage if posted overseas.
