Good cops, bad guys, killer husbands, homicidal women, thieves, firebugs, art heists, vicious murders and jailbreaks. Australia: a land of contradictions. Some call it lucky; but others know it’s also a mad, bad and dangerous place to live. We make heroes of our outlaws both colonial and contemporary; but if they harm our cops or our kids we want them hunted down and punished We’re intrigued by long-unsolved murders; but need this week’s homicide solved today In Outside the Law 2 some of our best crime writers take you on a trip into the shadows of Australian society. You’ll meet crooks who just can’t help themselves; killers with twisted logic or hearts of darkness; and cops who daily walk the thinnest of lines to keep them at bay, and away from the rest of us.
