Australia--tourist haven or murder capital? Kate Hood narrates the true-crime ordeal of English tourists Peter Falconio and Joanne Lees. While on a dream trip around the world, the couple is attacked in the Australian outback. Joanne manages to escape, but Peter is never seen again. Shortlisted for the 2006 Crime Writers Association Gold Dagger Award, the book is sprinkled with tales of Australia's criminal culture, the rough, alienated men who cruise long, barren stretches of dangerous roads, and the many backpackers murdered while traveling in Australia. Hood makes Joanne's every anguished moment real, keeping things intense--from the attack itself to the tedious police procedures in the hunt for the attacker.
