Australian Crime is an enthralling account of the changing nature of crime through the years.
There is an undeniable fascination that draws people to the criminal mind. It is difficult to understand the motivation behind the monstrous acts perpetrated by the infamous Granny Killer or behind the horrifying growth in the most disturbing of crimes - violence against children. It is easy, however, to remember the fear that gripped a nation at the time of the Truro murders. Malcolm Brown heads a team of journalists who have put together a wide-ranging picture of major crime in Australia. It is an enthralling account of the changing nature of crime through the years, a detailed case-by-case look at some of the most chilling events and colourful characters in our history.
