It was the biggest and most grisly case in criminal history. When bodies were discovered hidden in barrels in 1999 in South Australia, Jeremy Pudney was one of the first journalists to cover the case that stunned the entire world. Now, using his years of experience as a police reporter for the Adelaide Advertiser and Network Ten, Pudney pieces together the complete story of the Snowtown murders. Not only does he investigate the lives of the convicted men but he delves deeper, revealing a complex social web that enabled them not only to claim 12 victims but also to conceal their crimes for a long time. What he has discovered will undoubtedly shock, as he takes an unflinching look at one of the most terrifying series of brutal and senseless slayings ever unearthed. Not every detail was made public at the time and the book is packed with exclusive information never before seen.
