    Mr Stinky aka Ray Edwards Non descript, loner who managed to beat uip 2 wives, sexually interfere with his daughter, murder 2 teenagers in Shepparton then commit multiple rapes in Melbourne s eastern north eastern suburbs, eluding detection for 20 years Until finally, one day he was seen masturbating in his car in a small town in New South Wales, resulting in him being arrested fingerprinted by the NSW Police The finger print went to the Central Fingerprints Bureau where it was matched to the print lifted from the Shepparton murder crime scene all those years ago Edwards pleaded guilty to the 2 murders 5 rapes attempted rapes was given a life sentence Extraordinary tale of luck on the part of Edwards, the inadequacy of police investigative methods in relation to Victorian police finger printing Ultimately this case lead to a change in Victorian law that allowed police to take fingerprints I found it a fascinating read.

    I was born and raised in Shepparton and 8 years old at the time of the murder of Gary and Abina so I grew up with the mystery and some accounts of the terrible toll it took on their family and friends Andrew Rule wrote a marvellous, straightforward and easy to follow account of the often convoluted details of nearly twenty years of dead end leads, investigative bungles, innuendo and evil.Finally solving the investigation and catching Mr Stinky came down to fingerprints and keen eyed, devoted officers despite the ridiculous disparities in the laws between our States.I wish I had read this book years ago.

    Interviewed Andrew Rule for a university piece and he is an amazing man Well worth reading In the style of Capote s In Cold Blood , but as it was closer to home for me, I enjoyed it , and couldn t put it down.
