Product description

Product Description

It's 1850s Australia. A double murder. A locked room. The murderer is dying from a gunshot. But the reporter says the scene is near impossible.

Melbourne Herald reporter Edmund Finn (known to many as Garryowen) described it as "one the most atrocious deeds which darken the pages of colonial history". Yet he also reported that not one man in five hundred could have shot himself with that length of gun.

Was all as it seemed? Was the scene’s “discovery” staged by the dead woman’s husband to deflect suspicion from himself? Was the suspect the real murderer? And was he sane?

This is a journey to Melbourne in 1853. Using historical detective work and tools common to those exploring family history, the author reinvestigates this murder case and those connected with it. He reveals a far more complex story with modern resonance.

I enjoyed the pursuit of the mystery surrounding the death of mother and child. Although, there was a confession, a guilty verdict and a death by hanging there was real doubt surrounding the event. The first on the scene set the narrative that others followed but was it right?? obviously, the author had spent much time seeking identities and backgrounds to the characters involved.
