Australian Murders: 127 Killings that /Main, Jim/Paper/192091031X/S013-F
Police, searching for a missing Adelaide woman, unearth a corpse buried under concrete in a suburban garden. A jilted young woman prays in a cathedral and attends a ball at Government House where she shoots her former lover dead. A human head is stripped of flesh to prevent identification.
Shootings, stabbings, stranglings, poisonings and even axe killings. There are more than 100 murders in this chilling account of Australia's most celebrated cases, many attracting worldwide interest, from infamous nineteenth century "baby farming" to Melbourne's recent "society murder" - the killing of Margaret Wales-King.
Along the way there are such fascinating cases as "The Gun Alley Murder", "The Pyjama Girl Case", "The Skating Girl Murder", "The Limbs in the Yarra", "The Boiled Body", and even "Cooked in a Wok", not to mention the horrific Ivan Milat multiple murders.
This virtually is an encyclopedia of Australia's most infamous murders. There are more than a century of murders, right up to the twenty-first century. Gruesome, but fascinating. All immensely readable.
