Description

Journey into Australia's heart of darkness...where life is lived by a different set of rules and it is easy for criminals to disappear into the vast landscape - and yet it can be difficult to remain anonymous. The worst aspects of human nature reveal themselves in the red centre. Beginning with the chilling tale of convict and cannibal Alexander Pearce, Red Centre, Dark Heart explores historic and recent true-crime in the outback, including the Belango State Forest murders and the disappearance of Peter Falconio. Read these stories and you'll discover that Australia's dark heart is frighteningly close to home. From the bestselling author of Shipwrecks: Australia's Greatest Maritime Disasters, Outback Heroes and Outback Pioneers.show more
