Publisher's Summary

From the co-host of the Australian True Crime Podcast comes the cases you'll never forget and some you've never heard of. 

Chilling cases of murder and crime that have happened in the quiet streets of Australia's suburbs.

Emily Webb, co-host of the popular Australian True Crime podcast, details chilling cases of murder and crime that have happened in the quiet streets of Australia's suburbs. Featuring contemporary cases as well as some shocking historical murders you've probably never heard of, Suburban True Crime proves you shouldn't say 'it could never happen here'. 

This collection of cases that are hard to believe, except they really happened—and all in the streets and homes of the Australia many of us know and live. The suburbs.

These cases range from recent murders to some historical stories that will shock and surprise. Some of the cases you'll know and there's crimes you've never heard of.

Dive into still unsolved crimes like the mistaken identity murder of Melbourne mother Jane Thurgood-Dove and the horrifying story of a man who killed in Australia and then was released from prison, only to kill again in the United States.

There are also some historical crimes that shocked the community at the time but have now faded into obscurity, including cases of child murder in the 1970s. Think nothing ever happens where you live? Think again.

Love this author

I do love this author and the stories, but I think the narrator let the side down. It was all a bit matter of fact

Very respectful to the victims and well told

This book is very respectable towards the victims and their families treating them as the humans they are and not just as single point notes

Loved this book

This books spends a good bit of time giving insight to the victims, their families and the societal impacts of these crimes. The gentle telling really elevates it. I learned a lot about my home town over its years!

Emily Webb Fantastic

Only thing which would have made this better is if Emily read it herself. I lover her work on the podcast & enjoyed delving deeper into the cases in this book. Great work thanks Emily
