              "John Cobby was driving up the Pacific high-way looking for his missing wife, Anita, when he heard a news bulletin on his car radio. The body of naked woman has been found in a paddock in western Sydney. Police have not yet identified her. But John knew it was his wife Anita and ...it changed his life forever. The murder of nurse Anita Cobby in 1986 enraged the city at first but within weeks engulfed the entire nation when details of her injuries and the unspeakable acts by five men were revealed. Tuesday February 4, 1986 is the worst day of John Cobby's life and still is. After 30 years he is finally telling his story about his love for Anita, how they had just broken up and were planning to reunite on the eve of her murder. Within a year John had changed his name, fled overseas, used drugs for the first time in his life and spent time in a mental institution in America. He gives a chilling account of the police interview where he is accused of killing his wife and even admits to it. Little is known about Anita's husband, John, also a nurse.

              The national bestseller- John Cobby finally tells his story, 30 years after the murder of his wife, Anita. On 4 February 1986, John Cobby's life imploded. He was driving up the coast looking for his missing wife, Anita, when over the radio he heard- 'The body of a naked woman has... been found in a paddock in western Sydney.' ...As details emerged of the rape and murder of the gentle nurse and former beauty queen, outrage engulfed Australia. Five men were caught and, amid unprecedented security, jailed for life. For young reporter Mark Morri, the case was a baptism of fire. Told to 'find the husband', he despaired- Cobby had changed his name and disappeared. But the Daily Mirror found him, and Morri's interviews sold like hotcakes. For nearly 30 years, Morri and Cobby kept in touch. In this book John finally opens up, recounting how he and Anita fell in love, suffered the pain of miscarriage and then went travelling. He also explains why they were apart at the time of the murder. Weaving in chilling material from the autopsy and police files, and interviews with detectives who hunted down the killers, Mark Morri explores the ripple effects of the murder that still shocks a nation.

              They call her 'the gangbuster'. The police force can be a tough place for a woman, but Detective Superintendent Deborah Wallace rose to the top with grace, humour and an iconic sense of style. In her incredible 36-year career with NSW Police, Wallace took on murderers and drug su...ppliers, and dismantled the state's most nefarious gangs. Tenacious, perceptive and sharp, Wallace commanded a range of police crime squads, bringing order to the wild west of 1990s Cabramatta and busting criminal bikie gangs with Strike Force Raptor, until her retirement in late 2019. Her inner strength and empathy meant that she was a constant go-to for some of the state's toughest cases, and her poise and compassion earned her a special place in the lives and hearts of her colleagues - and the grudging respect of her criminal foes.
