FROM THE HOST OF THE HIT PODCAST I CATCH KILLERS
THE BESTSELLING TRUE CRIME BOOK OF 2022
As a cop, I used to sit on one side of the interview room table facing murderers, child abductors and rapists. Now I'm sitting on the other side: disgraced, forced out of the police and judged to be a criminal. I want to show you what the world looks like from here.
Talking to crooks, cops, forensic psychologists, scientists and victims, I've gone back to some of Australia's worst acts of badness, including unsolved murders that never made the front pages as well as infamous killings carried out by Ivan Milat and the Granny Killer, the murder of Anita Cobby, the Hoddle Street massacre, Port Arthur, horrific abuse at the Parramatta girls' home and the disappearance of preschooler William Tyrrell.
What I've found has made me question everything, including where evil comes from, what drives us to commit crimes and how we can prevent them. I used to think I was on the side of the angels. Now I am not so sure.
Gary Jubelin was one of Australia's most celebrated Homicide detectives, leading investigations into the William Tyrrell case, the serial killing of three Aboriginal children in Bowraville and the brutal gangland murder of Terry Falconer. In 2020, he was found guilty of illicitly recording conversations with a witness. Since leaving the NSW Police Force, he has built a career in the media, working in newspapers, television and podcasts. Gary still works hard to help the victims of crime.
Gary Jubelin has an honest and open style of writing. It feels more like having a conversation than reading a book. I couldn’t stop reading till I had finished the whole book!
Great read with interesting stories
Enlightening and compelling
Unpacks in detail, with references to direct experiences and cases, the root causes of Badness.
Also a deeper insight into what drives Gary Jubelin and makes him tick.
If you didn’t admire him before reading his books, I challenge you not to afterwards.
