Praise for A Murder Without Motive
"Honest, sympathetic, reflective--this is true crime at its best. A striking debut from McKenzie-Murray, which pursues uncomfortable truths with candour and care."
--Damon Young, author of Philosophy in the Garden and Distraction
"McKenzie-Murray's adolescence is closely entwined with the crime, and his deep, thoughtful examination of the suburban male psyche is one of the many strengths of this remarkable book...Insightful and eloquent...His immaculate prose cuts cleanly through the social murk, and his clarity of vision renders the complicated ideas of male aggression and the ugly side effects of suburban malaise at once shocking and shockingly readable."
--Michaela McGuire, The Saturday Age
"[T]akes an unorthodox but illuminating approach to his subject, beginning with introspection and, perhaps, atonement...McKenzie-Murray firmly rejects the proposition that the murder was an aberration in a life otherwise considered "normal", something Duggan's defence counsel submitted in the absence of a criminal history. Indeed the notion of "normality", particularly in the light of Duggan's heinous crime, meets with the author's disdain."
--Martin Leonard, Weekend Australian
