The Truth Behind New Zealand's Most Famous Murder Mystery.
If Arthur Allan Thomas didn't kill Jeanette and Harvey Crewe - who did?
The 1970 murders of Jeanette and Harvey Crewe in there isolated farmhouse at Pukekawa, South Auckland, was a crime that has few parallels in New Zealand history. Arthur Allan Thomas was twice convicted of murdering the Pukekawa couple, but was later declared innocent and pardoned. One question still remains unanswered. If Thomas did not kill the Crewes - who did?
Written by a journalist who has been researching the mystery for 25 years, this book identifies the killer of the Crewes - a person who has never been brought to justice - and provides compelling evidence about why the couple were gunned down. The book also investigates the identity of the mystery woman who fed the Crewes' infant daughter Rochelle after her parents were murdered and who, the evidence suggests, helped the killer dump the bodies in the Waikato River.
Thirty years after the event, the truth about New Zealand's most shocking and controversial murder case is finally brought to light.
