“The suitcase washed up on the North Shore in the early hours of Saturday morning, 17 November 1923”.

In Sydney in the 1920s, babies were turning up in the harbour, on trains, and in public places. These babies, all murdered, mostly by their mothers, were a devastating symptom of changing morals and a growing metropolis. One of these babies turned up on a harbour beach – and from there, an extraordinary story unfolded.

Book to be released by Hachette in 2018.
