Janelle Patton, Kerry Whelan and Peter Falconio all became household names for the same reason: they were victims of heinous – and mysterious – crimes. But they are just three victims; each year hundreds of similar crimes are committed, many of which are never solved.Mad, Bad and Mysterious: Murder, Rape and Pillage in Australia attempts to uncover what truly happened to Patton, Whelan and Falconio, as well as recounting the investigations of other horrendous crimes, including the hunt for the rapist of a 92-year-old woman, the perpetrators of the gruesome bashing death of a benefactor to street kids and the hunt for a ruthless serial rapist and murderer. Edited by Malcolm Brown and featuring the work of some of Australia’s most respected journalists, Mad, Bad and Mysterious: Murder, Rape and Pillage in Australia is an intriguing study of what makes people commit the outrageous crimes of murder and rape. pp. 300 illusts #0920
