Who Killed Scott Guy?

Author's Home Country: 
New Zealand
Category: 
True Crime

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.

His name isn’t Furt Bent, and he isn’t from Aldaheit. He’s the persona that Osgood Sneddon invented for himself to rise above the mundane, and extricate himself from trouble when a moment’s misunderstanding lands him on the wrong side of the law.

Specifically, he falls on the wrong side of Hubbard - and that’s the wrong place to be. Detective Inspector Hubbard is poisonous, profane and effective, and he doesn't let the truth get in the way of a result.
