Product description

Product Description

Like the Beaumont children and the Azaria Chamberlain cases before it, the backpacker murder case in Belanglo State Forest has entered Australian criminal folklore. Seven young people, most of them foreigners backpacking around Australia, brutally murdered, their remains uncovered in 1992 and 1993. It would take scores of police over three years, countless hours of forensic investigation, thousands of false leads and a few precious clues to charge and convict Ivan Milat for their horrific deaths.

Sins of the Brother is the definitive work on Ivan Milat, his family and the murders. Almost four years in the making, informed by exclusive interviews with members of the Milat family, key police investigators and Crown lawyers, this book reveals a family culture so bizarre it would lead inexorably to murder. It also scrutinises the police investigation-its remarkable success and failures, the dramatic turning point and the backbiting and bitterness that followed Milat's arrest.

Thought-provoking, totally unsalacious, an exploration of the darker side of Australian life as a whole, Sins of the Brother is a detailed and gripping read-a psychological thriller come to life.

About the Author

Mark Whittaker is the author or co-author of eight books, including Sins of the Brother: The definitive Story of Ivan Milat and The Backpacker Murders, The Road to Mount Buggery: A Journey through the Curiously Named Places of Australia, and Love and Death in Kathmandu: A Strange Tale of Royal Murder. In 2005, he won the Walkley Award for Magazine Feature Writing for a story in the Weekend Australian Magazine about the people who ran into a burning daycare centre to save the children inside. Mark lives on the New South Wales south coast with his wife and sometimes co-author, Amy Willesee, and their two children.
