it was amazing

What a phenomenal true crime/who-dunnit! As the sub-title says, this is the "strange but true" story of a bushranger (hold-up man) in Australia's outback -- and an inside look at its early prisons. The author has done an outstanding job of following the long and winding trail of "Captain Starlight" (with his many crimes and akas), and comes up with the best possible explanation likely for who this mystery man really was. It's an amazing true story of lies, deception, and surprising twists you won't forget!
