Currently Reading - The Phillip Island Murder, Vikki Petraitis and Paul Daley
This is a true crime book about the murder of a young woman on Phillip Island - that has been blamed on the wife of the victim's lover, although the wife disappeared on that night - believed to have committed suicide off the San Remo Bridge. Although there is enough in the story to make you wonder.
From the Blurb:
The discovery of the dead body of Beth Barnard, a popular, lively, attractive 23-year-old, on the floor of the bedroom in the island farmhouse where she lived, began a murder investigation and rocked a peaceful community. Her plucky defence had been no match for the sustained savagery of her knife-wielding attacker.
