Cheryl Fagan, in a prequel to a definitive text on the subject has written an easy to read account of these three horrific murders and examined the evidence against possible murderers. She has expressed her own views on the identity of the murderer (s) and as three victims were involved in the Gatton murders, it is probable that more than one person was involved in the crime.

The author also notes that the Kenniff brothers and other associates, were suspects in the Gatton murders, and she also examines the inadequacy of the police investigations into both the Gatton and Oxley murders. This book excites the juices and it is enough to make an enquiring mind undertake further research and to read her final work.
