Re-live the trial of Gerard Baden-Clay, jailed for life after murdering his wife Allison. The account is based on live reporting, direct from the courtroom each day.

Read witness accounts of what happened, how the police pieced together the fascinating case, the lies and deceit of the defendant, and how a family was torn apart by money troubles, affairs and the ultimate brutal assault which led to the death of "the girl next door", a mother of three young children and darling of the community.

It's the trial which gripped an entire city for 21 remarkable days.


  • Very average editing

    By Coolachick
    For a book prepared by qualified journalists, I found the editing very disappointing. There are a lot of typos throughout the entire manuscript and I found that I was still left with quite a few questions about the case, despite the blurb claiming that it would be a thorough and in depth reporting of the court case from start to finish.
  • Not great detail but great explanation

    Ok so absolutely think he is guilty. But questions, she was in her sleep wear when he got home was this found or discarded. Did she change? We're are these items for evidence? His mobile was recharged from next to his bedside?? Who was the missed call from? Did Tony call her? He clearly had no problem Lying as far as too his family and wife about his other activities. Which shows how deceiving he could be. The blood in the car and the fact he didn't take his own car?? The way the bed was made, how many people in a rush to get ready have time to make their bed, and not realise their partner was not there. The way the whoLe defence was based on her being on medication, umm much better for someone to take charge and have medication versus be unstable? Financially every close to him gave home money. It he kept going to different people says to me that he knew he couldn't keep approaching them as they hadn't got anything. Back , so he was basically being a con artists everyone. I think he is a very insular person who only cares about his appearance and how to get something off people. When everything went south and he knew he couldn't followed through on, more so business and publicly wise. His affair is really relevant to his character bit not a big picture theme, should he have left Allison for Tony she would have been replaced or he would have had affairs on her, clearly behind close doors And deny deny deny. Being analytical say Allison set him up and committed suicide, could Allison have taken his phone off him for here nightly check and found something and rather than confront, set him up?? Or had a fight and then left? Doubt it. Why would she be found with her her hands still within her jumper? Kind of awkward for someone to wander around like this. I started reading this two days ago by chance and yesterday on the news I saw on the news about being changed to manslaughter. Judged by peers should be uphold by peers This person whilst possibly won't kill again clearly would if he is about to get caught
  • Horrendously repetitive

    By Little*goat
    This "book" just repeats the exact same facts and sentences over and over again. The same photos are also used every few pages. This is the most repetitive thing I've ever read in my life. At least it was get what you pay for.
