Beschreibung von Audible

Kate Hood delivers a rousing performance of And Then the Darkness a nonfiction book by Sue Williams. Peter Falconio and Joanne Lees, an English couple, set off for an adventure in the Australian Outback. Joanne was later found wandering by a highway with her hands bound and tape in her hair. She told police that a stranger had shot Peter and tied her up, but she had managed to escape. A massive manhunt ensued, but soon the media began to question both the authorities and Joanne. Was she telling the truth? Who was the stranger? Would justice ever be served?

Inhaltsangabe

And Then the Darkness is a gripping account of the disappearance in the Australian Outback of English tourist Peter Falconio. His girlfriend, Joanne Lees, was found cut, bleeding and wandering the highway, her hands bound. Joanne's account of her ordeal sparked a frenzy of media interest and the biggest manhunt ever mounted in Australia. Questions arose about the police operation and about Joanne herself.

Award-winning journalist and columnist Sue Williams delves into the saga as it unfolds, finding a policeman willing to risk everything to crack the case, a journalist hell-bent on proving Joanne a liar, endless conspiracy theories, countless devastated lives in both Britain and Australia, and, ultimately, an explosive finale.

Kritikerstimmen

"This skillfully woven recreation of events reads so much like a seriously creepy novel, it well may have you swearing off outback holidays forever. All the detail and facts, however, have been accrued from some serious journalistic digging, and it's the density of detail, along with its ominous atmosphere, that is the true gold." ( Australian Women's Weekly)
"Like good crime fiction, And Then the Darkness presents us with clearly drawn characters and a satisfying denouement." ( The Age)

Well done!

Very interesting, well written, maybe a little too many distracting details on irrelevant minor characters.
