On 2 December 2010, the body of a 23-year-old woman was found at the bottom of the rubbish chute in the luxury Balencea tower apartments in St Kilda Road, Melbourne, twelve floors below the apartment she shared with her boyfriend, Antony Hampel.Within minutes, the sound of sirens filled the hall as police cars from the nearby police station filled the front forecourt in response to the day manager's call.

So began the so-called investigation into the sudden death of a young woman called Phoebe Handsjuk. From then, the case became weirder and weirder. Phoebe, it turned out, was a beautiful but damaged young woman who'd been in a fraught relationship with a well-connected and wealthy lover twice her age, who was related to the elite of Melbourne's judiciary. The police botched their investigation, so Phoebe's grandfather, a former detective, decided to run one of his own.

And in December 2014, after a 14-day inquest, the Coroner delivered a finding that ruled out both suicide and foul play, a ruling that shocked her family and many others who had been following the case. How did Phoebe Handsjuk die? In Into the Darkness, Robin Bowles uses her array of investigative and forensic skills to tell a tale that is stranger than fiction.
