Unholy Silence - The book that launched a Royal Commission, even before it was published.
Unholy Silence
The book that launched a Royal Commission, even before it was published
By Father Kevin Lee

A Catholic priest exposes systematic cover-ups of pedophilia and predatory homosexuality in his own Church.
Father Kevin's claim to have forced a Royal Commission into sexual abuse of children in Australia is not without foundation. He had been agitating about it for over a decade. And if you analyse the chronology of events, Father Kevin's admission on Channel 7's 6pm news on April 31st was the catalyst that sparked media interest into why a successful priest would commit sacerdotal suicide by telling everyone he had been living a lie for over a year.

The Janine Balding story: A journey through a mother’s nightmare.
The Janine Balding story: A journey through a mother’s nightmare
Bev Balding tells her story and honours the memory of her daughter in a straightforward, yet very touching way.
By Beverley Balding


The abduction, gang rape and murder of young Sydney woman Janine Balding in 1988 really was a crime that rocked Australians. Janine’s murder was just a few years after the abduction, rape and murder of Sydney nurse Anita Cobby and an already-sickened community was again shocked by the death of another vivacious young woman.
I first read this book when it came out 1995 and I found a copy at a second-hand bookstore. I don’t think it is still in print but if people can get their hands on a copy it it well worth a read. Written by Janine’s mother Bev, with the assistance of journalist Janet Fife-Yeomans, The Janine Balding Story is from the perspective of a family’s devastated at the loss of a child to a violent crime and their views on the justice system. Janine, 20, was abducted from a railway station by a gang of five youths (including one girl), raped, hog-tied and dumped in a dam in Western Sydney.
One of the gang, Bronson Blessington (known as B during the trial) was 14 and he and two others were jailed for life in NSW – their file stamped “never to be released”. The eldest of the group, a repugnant man Stephen “shorty” Jamieson (nicknamed Shorty for his very short stature, also born with foetal alcohol syndrome) was 22. It is hard to imagine how a family goes on after such a tragedy. Bev Balding tells her story and honours the memory of her daughter in a straightforward, yet very touching way.

Lambs to the Slaughter : Inside the Depraved Mind of Child Killer Derek Ernest Percy.
Lambs to the Slaughter
Inside the Depraved Mind of Child Killer Derek Ernest Percy
By Debi Marshall


Young. White. High IQ. Middle-class family. Naval rating. A portrait of a yuppie success story? No. A portrait of child killer, Derek Ernest Percy.
In this definitive, graphically chilling account of Percy's life, a man dubbed by a prison officer as 'Australia's answer to Hannibal Lecter', award-winning true-crime author Debi Marshall applies her investigative journalism skills to a forensic examination of the crimes, the man and his modus operandi.
Informed by exclusive material never before seen - poignant and insightful interviews with Percy's mother, victims' families, psychiatrists, police officers and former colleagues - Marshall also takes us on her personal journey as she seeks to unravel the truth about the monster whose lonely, idiosyncratic character has deceived the best psychiatric minds for 40 years.
Is Derek Percy responsible for Australia's worst unsolved child abductions and murders?

One night in March 1999 fifteen-year-old dance student Rachel Elizabeth Barber vanished.
By Elizabeth Southall (Rachel's mother)/ Megan Norris.
Perfect Victim
One night in March 1999, fifteen-year-old dance student Rachel Elizabeth Barber vanished.
By Elizabeth Southall (Rachel's mother)/ Megan Norris


One night in March 1999, fifteen-year-old dance student Rachel Elizabeth Barber vanished. No one could have guessed that she had become another girl's 'perfect' victim. Happy. Beautiful. Talented. She had everything her killer could want. Perceived by crime experts everywhere as one of the most bizarre homicides they had encountered, Perfect Victim recounts two stories: Rachel's mother Elizabeth Southall tells of her family's heart-rendering experience – how they lived through unimaginable tragedy, going to extraordinary lengths to prove their daughter wasn't a runaway. Criminal court reporter Megan Norris provides another side of the picture; the analysis, the astonishment of professionals when faced with the killer's weird and unsettling letters, and the police proceedings that led, eventually, to the Rachel Barber case being solved.
Confronting and compelling, this is an incredible story about a callous and calculated crime.
