Bondi Badlands: The Definitive Story of Sydney's Gay Hate Murders (Google eBook)
A thrilling and compelling story of a horrific series of crimes and one man's single-minded resolve to bring the killers to justice.
With blood stains on the walkway and screams often heard late at night, the long concrete pathway skirting the cliff face between the beaches of Bondi and Tamarama in Sydney's Eastern suburbs was dubbed the Bondi Badlands - and it was here in the late 1980s that a handful of young men were dragged to their deaths after nightfall.
The slow road to an overdue justice began when Detective Sergeant Stephen Page read a series of letters from a distraught mother of one of the victims. Painstakingly piecing together the dark mural of the murders, he revived the police investigation into the deaths, code-named Operation Taradale.
Told with all the excitement and pace of a crime thriller, this story of the Bondi Badlands murders is unputdownable.
