Currently Reading - Outside the Law

I like these sorts of true crime books as fill-ins, especially if I've recently read a few hefty fictional tomes.

From the Blurb:

This revised, expanded collection of true crime by Australia's foremost crime writers digs beneath the polite exterior of modern Australian life to expose its chilling core.

Opening Lines:

Australia is a lucky country.  By world standards we are safe, secure and affluent.  We have been spared widespread racial violence and our crime rate remains relatively low.  But there is a thread of violence through the fabric of this seemingly civilised society that began with the arrival of the convicts on the First Fleet.
