Murder and injustice in the Australian bush. In 1936 Harry Lavers disappeared without a trace from Grenfell, NSW. Itinerant rural worker Fred McDermott was convicted of his murder in 1947.McDermott persistently protested that he was innocent and following an enquiry five years later, he was released. But the full story of the injustice he suffered was not revealed.In this compelling narrative, author and lawyer tom Molomby investigates how the false case against McDermott was built up, and shows the abuses and flaws in the system of criminal justice, which led to his conviction. this story also offers a fascinating insight into early twentieth-century Australian society.
