Contents

While driving through the Australian outback two young English tourists are flagged down by a predatory stranger. There's a single gunshot, and then the darkness.... Peter Falconio's disappearance in 2001 sparked one of the biggest manhunts and mysteries in Australia's history. The only witness was Peter's girlfriend, Joanne Lees, who was found wandering the highway, her hands bound in front of her and tape matted in her hair. The only clue was a pool of blood found by police at the back of the couple's kombi.; Joanne's account of her ordeal - the apparent murder of her partner, her binding and gagging, and her miraculous escape into the bush - provoked a frenzy of media interest and a huge police operation, but as clues to the attacker's identity were scarce, and police blunders mounted, doubts about Joanne's story began to surface. Was this seemingly innocent English backpacker telling the truth?
