A police commander, a parole officer, a matron, a court artist and a mounted police officer - the author found all of these key players from the seventies when she investigated the story of Veronica Knight, the first victim of the serial killers in the infamous Truro murders in South Australia. Forty years after the discovery of the remains in the Truro bush, what started as a foster carer's exploration of a sad memory, developed into a search that took an unexpected direction, uncovering the long held grief and sadness of an ever-widening circle of co-victims in this tragedy. The writer found herself confronted with the need to forgive as she revisited the events that still horrify South Australia. Woods wrote this well-researched narrative against a background of 'forgotten Australians' in institutions, tandem serial killers and Adelaide in the 70s, bringing a faith perspective to Veronica's story and finally giving her a voice.

Couldn't put it down

What a story!. Unraveling the mystery of the Truro muders in SA and remembering the short life of Veronica. It is a roller-coaster of emotion as the answers appear and more people are added to the story. Exciting to read of the way God moves and opens doors at the right time. A fitting tribute to Veronica.
