    Between 1992 and 1999 a series of horrendous murders were committed around the suburbs of Adelaide The discovery of bodies being stored in barrels in a bank in the town of Snowtown, earned the killings the nickname of the Snowtown Murders The acts of the people involved defy belief and the killings were extremely brutal Susan Mitchell is from Adelaide and in this book she tries to reconcile how the city of light can also be dubbed the serial killer capital of Australia Written during the trial and released shortly after Mitchell trawls through the history of South Australia, the influences, previous crimes and meets with people of influence Trying to understand why this has happened I have to say the book has not aged well Having read this recently, there is a great deal of assumption that you will know the detail and history of the crimes and people involved As there are gaps, sometimes dates are missing and you have to go back and forth to remember who some of the minor characters are While Mitchell is happy to talk to the Adelaide elites in an attempt to understand why these crimes have happened, she never talks to people who are the closest That being those who are in that cycle of poverty, unemployment and despair It does seem to be an omission in trying to understand why there is two sides ...

    Extremely interesting and disturbing account of the events that led up to the terrible Snowtown murders in South Australia It is just surreal that this happened in the state in which I have lived for most of my life
