In 1926 one of the most diabolical murders to ever take place in Western Australia was committed.

Two members of the Goldstealing Detection Branch of the West Australian Police Force were murdered near Kalgoorlie, and their bodies partly dismembered and burned.

The remains were then taken to a mineshaft and unceremoniously dumped. A gold processing plant was then thrown on top of the mutilated bodies.

This book reports all the known facts of the case. There are no imagined histrionics or manufactured conversations. Some of the photographs have never been previously published or even seen before, except in Court.
