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

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.

Interesting

4

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.

Very "Interesting".

Personal "Interest factor".

Adelaide

true

Too repetitive

1

Half of the book covers information which is not new. It's what so many of us have read in the papers over the years. The other half is repetitive because it tells the same family story three times by two different people. It's probably the author's way of trying to convince the reader, but it seemed too far fetched to me and I noticed inconsistencies between their recounts. As a teacher of English, I like to read books and articles that do not finish sentences with prepositions and are well edited. Sorry, this just didn't hit the spot.

Adelaide

false

To much he said, she said for true crime

1

A disappointing read, especially after Major Crime have discounted the story. I love reading true crime and feel cheated to have bought the book and now know that the facts are not true.

Adelaide

Interesting thoughts

4

There were 2 sons in the family. Have the authors discussed their findings with the second son or have they relied soley on the word of the eldest son? It was my understanding that the house next door was left to the youngest son not the son in the book.

Adelaide

true

A convincing and factual story

4

Everyone should read this story, it provides logical explanations for many unanswered questions on this 40 year mystery.

Sydney
