Rough Justice: Unanswered Questions from the Australian Courts examines the question at the heart of our criminal justice system - what happens when our courts get it wrong? Why is former Victorian police sergeant Denis Tanner a free man if the Victorian state coroner named him as the killer of his sister-in-law Jennifer Tanner? Did Greg Domaszewicz really kill Jaidyn Leskie and get away with it because he had a good lawyer? What was the real cause of the sudden death of young nursing sister Birgit Munro when 24 hours before she died she'd been 'as fit as a flea'? Why did West Australian alleged hit-run killer John Button confess to killing his fiancee Rosemary Anderson if he didn't do it? Why won't Bradley John Murdoch tell the police where he hid Peter Falconio's body? Why did a juror in Graham Stafford's trial call Stafford's mother - after reading a book containing the full story of the murder Stafford had allegedly committed - to apologise for finding her son guilty? Was Roseanne Catt, who served a ten-year jail term in New South Wales for the attempted murder of her husband Barry, 'an evil and manipulative woman or the victim of a terrible conspiracy' between her husband and the police? Did Henry Keogh cold-bloodedly drown his fiancee in her bath, or has he served nearly half his life sentence as an innocent man, condemmed by an incompetent forensic report? This latest book by Australia's true crime queen, Robin Bowles, makes no claim to promote the guilt or innocence of any of the people discussed. Rather, it examines the due process of the law and how, at times, that process may not seem to deliver justice.
