It's difficult to say that I like this book because the subject is gruesome. Having watched the film, Snowtown, which provided almost no information about the people involved, I wanted to read an account. This book does a solid job of providing information. It's part detective story in that it starts by piecing together how the police stumbled onto the existence of the crime. Then it moves into the murders and then the trials.

Criticism one: I could have used a clearer biography of the people involved especially Bunting. I often had to piece together the age of the characters, what age when they met, and what age they were when murdered from various bits of information scattered all over the book. The author would discuss one victim in one year and then jump to another person. Perhaps I would have preferred a strict chronological account rather than the skipping around.

Criticism two: there were three sections of the book, each of which needlessly repeated information. The third section especially was an unnecessary bore. Most of it was taken unedited from the trial transcripts and repeated what was written before.

There was a semi-helpful relationship chart at the beginning of the book and I started using that to record birth dates, age at death, reasons for being targeted, death order, etc.

Really not to much written about these events After reading several books on the subject I found this is a pretty complete picture of what really happened and shows the crimes for what they were, not just the headline grabbing mess the media made of it. The movie on these murders was reasonably accurate but also took liberties with the facts. In short these horrid crimes were about the petty theft of pensions stolen from the people killed. This book was based on police transcripts and interviews with people who were accomplices or friends of victims. Many accomplices turned up as dead victims with the horror of the deaths keeping other, or new, accomplices so bugged out they couldn't talk. It looked like an MK-Ultra plan carried out by a couple of low life Manson/Dalmer like stooges. If they did not keep the bodies they may have never been convicted of more than a couple cases of pension fraud. Some parts of the case are still sealed to this day.

I think there was a lot of repeat of information. It seemed like the author was an amateur. I still got a lot of information out of the book.

Amazing read, saw the movie and wanted to know more. I read this in one sitting I love serial killer/true crime books, and this is one of my favorites..

I have read similar accounts of these murders but I think this author, Jeremy Pudney, best describes the grusome events that occurred at Snowtown.
I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in Australian Crime.

I bought this book because I saw the documentary about this case in Discovery Channel. Wanting to know more about the perpetrators, I was a bit dissapointed by this book. The writer is a crime reporter at a local newspaper and this is how the book is set up as well: very factual, most info comes obviously from police reports and court documents. But you never get to know John Bunting in this book, there's no real background info on him, in what kind of milieu he grew up etc. So this books gives you the facts and nothing more, in my view.
