From the acclaimed author of THE SUITCASE BABY and THE SUICIDE BRIDE, the fascinating story of a series of horrific murders that began in 1930s Sydney - and a killer who remained at large for over two decades.
In December 1932, as the Depression tightened its grip, the body of a woman was found in Queens Park, Sydney. It was a popular park. There were houses in plain view. Yet this woman had been violently murdered without anyone noticing. Other equally brutal and shocking murders of women in public places were to follow. Australia's first serial killer was at large.
Police failed to notice the similarities between the victims until the death of one young woman - an aspiring Olympic swimmer - made the whole city take notice. On scant evidence, the unassuming Eric Craig was arrested. But the killings didn't stop...
A compelling story of a city crippled by fear and what happens when victims are blamed and suspects are presumed guilty, The Killing Streets investigates how a murderer could remain free to kill again.
