Description of this Book

Journalist Mike White's book titled Who Killed Scott Guy? is an account of the successful defence of murder accused Ewen Macdonald.
Macdonald was acquitted of shooting dead his brother-in-law Scott in July 2010.
The book details the crime scene, the work of the defence team, holes in the police case and the resulting trial. It includes excerpts from Macdonald's diary, and states the jury got it right.
The book also describes how Macdonald's former friend and hunting mate Callum Boe told police: "I think that Ewen Macdonald shot Scott Guy, and that's just spinning in my head. And it's just a theory, that is, like my gut is telling me that."
