The Killing of Caroline Byrne

Author's Home Country: 
Australia
Category: 
True Crime

On a bleak, moonless winter night in 1995 beautiful Sydney model Caroline Byrne died, her body embedded head-first into a crevice at the bottom of The Gap at the entrance to Sydney Harbour.

How did she get out so far, almost 12 metres from the base of the sheer sandstone precipice? Did she jump, as so many had done before at the notorious suicide spot, or had she been thrown in a fit of rage?

Martin John Bryant slipped into the world in the autumn of 1967, blond, blue-eyed, angelic.  On a sunny Sunday 29 years later, Carleen and Maurice Bryant's beloved first-born loaded the boot of his yellow Volvo with guns and ammunition and returned to Tasmania's historic Port Arthur settlement, scene of many idyllic childhood summers.

Currently Reading - The Killing of Caroline Byrne, Robert Wainwright

Author Name: 

This is another one of those true crime books that I've been meaning to pick up for a while.  It's about the death of a woman who was initially thought (by some) to have jumped off The Gap in Sydney.  Connections to Rene Rivkin, the length of time the investigation took, and the eventual finding of guilty against her boyfriend made the case quite a talking point, although mostly in New South Wales.
