The disappearance of the Beaumont children in Adelaide in 1966 has become part of Australian folklore. Nobody under the age of 40 was alive when it happened, but few Australians today have not heard of the case.

The mystery of what happened to the children has remained unsolved because of the failure to identify a suspect – a man seen 'frolicking' with the children on a grassy reserve the day they disappeared – and a lack of witnesses and the absence of crime scene evidence.

The Satin Man lays out everything that has been discovered about the case, with a view to establishing a coronial enquiry into allegations that a local man who lived 500 metres from where the children were last seen was involved in their disappearance.

WRITE A REVIEW

The Satin Man now a person of interest to SAPOL

5

The Satin Man is now elevated to a person of interest by SAPOL. Only the 5th person in relation to this case in 52 years. Fictitous characters ? The book is based in real people who have been interviewed by SAPOL and many by channel 7 . Why ? for there documentary aired early 2018 to record viewer numbers . Also talk to the then teenage schoolgirl in the 1970s allegedly raped and sodmised by Harry Phipps near her home next to the cast alloy factory as shown on channel 7 . ( see you tube ) Harry Phipps deserves to be a person off interest .Those children never went far and never left Glenelg. They authors stand by the books information 100%

It was an informative read. It had facts. once i started to read it i had a very hard time putting it down. There needs to be a inquest into case's like these.

Couldn't Put it Down

5

Well written, well researched book. I couldn't put it down when I first picked it up. My wife read it in about 4 hours - me a bit longer. I think I have the character worked out who took the kids, and it isn't the main character in the book. Hopefully we will find out one day. A must read for all who remember this event.

Interesting read & pretty convincing for me as someone who grew up in the same area at the same time & attended the same school as these poor children though I was older & didn't know them. The 'suspect' in the book is now considered a 'person of interest' by Major Crime in Adelaide due to a lot of behind the scenes work. Needless to say some of his family have been outraged that such claims have been made against a man unable to defend himself (he died in 2004) but it will be interesting to see if - as one reviewer claims - the book is ficticious - or whether something comes of the 2nd excavation about to commence at the Castalloy site

Fascinating read

5

An easy read. The facts around this case are fascinating, perplexing and are presented by the author so as to ask more questions about the disappearance of the Beaumont children so many years ago.

Whether this is true or not we will never know unless there is a deathbed confession or the bodies of the Beaumont children are found, but the theory is plausible and well researched.
