Late on a chilly July night, residents of a quiet Sydney suburb were roused by Sef Gonzales, the son of their new neighbours, yelling that someone had murdered his family. The brutal triple slaying inside 6 Collins Street shocked even the police.
The twenty-year-old orphaned son Sef quickly became the prime suspect, and after an eleven-month investigation he was arrested and eventually sentenced to three terms of life imprisonment.
Kara Lawrence is a crime reporter for Sydney's Daily Telegraph and is one of the few journalists to have interviewed Sef Gonzales. Working with sources close to the investigation and trial, she uncovers the true extent of the case's twists and turns. And through exclusive access to key members of Sef's extended family, she probes the Gonzales' history to ask: what would lead a young man from a wealthy and apparently stable home to commit the unspeakable crime of slaughtering his own family? Is Sef Gonzales mad, or genuinely evil?
