    Presents the story of an outback nightmare that goes down as one of the most appalling and terrifying crimes in modern Australian history. This story exposes the dark underbelly of a nation which paints itself as a warm, inviting holiday destination but too often proves to be anything but, as foreign tourists fall victim to its hidden dangers.

    In this compelling account, Roger Maynard reveals the incredible background to one of Australia's most intriguing murder cases. It was a crime that tapped into our worst fears. Hiding in the dark in the lonely expanse of the Australian outback, stalked by a potential killer, a young woman crouched under a bush - battered, bruised and terrified - her boyfriend missing, probably dead. Somehow managing to evade her attacker, Joanne Lees might have felt the worst of her ordeal was behind her. Instead, it had hardly begun. the murder of British tourist Peter Falconio in the Northern territory in mid-July 2001 at first seemed simply a callous act of unprovoked violence. But as the days and months progressed, other, more sinister stories began to emerge within the public and across the media. Was one of the victims in danger of becoming the accused? For the last four years, veteran English journalist Roger Maynard has travelled throughout Australia and the United Kingdom uncovering evidence about this extraordinary case and addressing the key questions. Were there holes in Joanne's story? Could there have been a motive for the killing? Had the police contaminated the evidence?
    Was it even possible Peter was still alive?
