    Violent Crimes that Shocked a Nation, Unsolved

    Following Ivan Milat’s arrest, police officers started searching the home he shared with his sister, Shirley. Among the items seized was this book, Violent Crimes that Shocked a Nation – Unsolved by Australian author and former Daily Mirror reporter, Anthony Barnao. The book was published in 1985 and is now out of print.

I couldn’t find a description of the book but going by the title it’s obviously about unsolved crimes in Australia.
