Book Synopsis

Imagine sitting in a maximum security prison, wrongly convicted of murdering a woman you’ve never met.

This was the fate of Andrew Mallard. His incredible story is a battle for justice, truth and, ultimately, freedom.

In 1994 Pamela Lawrence was brutally bashed to death in her jewellery shop in Perth. Police suspicion fell on a young drifter named Andrew Mallard. Although innocent, he was charged and convicted of this murder.

It took 12 years and an epic struggle by Andrew’s mother and sister, a team of lawyers and West Australian journalist Colleen Egan to right this wrong.

Not only did their unrelenting battle for justice end with the High Court of Australia making a devastating judgment against the West Australian courts, it also led to cold-case investigators identifying the real murderer.

This is an emotional roller-coaster of a book, brilliantly and compellingly written. It is about justice, survival and what can happen when good people take on the system.
