Scott Guy was a good man, a great dad, a salt-of-the-earth farmer who was gunned down at his front gate for no conceivable reason.
His death enthralled us, partly because it was so inexplicable, but also because there were no obvious suspects. When police finally arrested someone, public fascination soared - because the person they claimed killed Scott Guy was his brother-in-law, colleague and former mate, Ewen Macdonald.
Mike White is a senior writer at North & South magazine. He investigated Scott Guy's murder for more than a year and was present throughout Ewen Macdonald's five-week trial. At the 2013 Canon Media Awards, he won the Magazine Feature Writer of the Year award for his coverage of the case.
On Saturday morning, 7 December 1963, Eric Lewis called around to his property in Bassett Road, Remuera, Auckland, to collect the rent. He was not prepared for the scene that greeted him when he opened the door: his two tenants, George Walker and Kevin Speight, had been violently murdered days before.
Scott Bainbridge is one of New Zealand's best-known true crime writers. He is the author of four books, including Shot in the Dark.
After 15 years, New Zealand's leading crime writer, Paul Thomas is back with another Ihaka blockbuster - all three previous books were huge sellers, with Old School Tie winning Australia's prestigious Ned Kelly Award for crime writing.
