Summary

A police commander, a parole officer, a matron, a court artist and a mounted police officer - the author found all of these key players from the seventies when she investigated the story of Veronica Knight, the first victim of the serial killers in the infamous Truro murders in South Australia. Forty years after the discovery of the remains in the Truro bush, what started as a foster carer’s exploration of a sad memory, developed into a search that took an unexpected direction, uncovering the long held grief and sadness of an ever-widening circle of co-victims in this tragedy. The writer found herself confronted with the need to forgive as she revisited the events that still horrify South Australia. Woods wrote this well-researched narrative against a background of ‘forgotten Australians’ in institutions, tandem serial killers and Adelaide in the 70s, bringing a faith perspective to Veronica’s story and finally giving her a voice.

    Carol Bundy was looking for love. She’d been through three husbands, two boyfriends — and then she found Doug Clark. He was perfect. He was handsome, spoke French, and Doug was a sexual athlete.  
    He was everything Carol wanted. 
    In June 1980, Carol and Doug started killing prostitutes on Sunset Strip. 
    Sexual Killing: A Shocking True Crime Story follows the stone-cold serial killing of Carol Bundy and Doug Clark during the summer of 1980. 
    Carol was willing to do anything for Doug. She seduced an eleven-year-old neighbor into their bed, painted the decapitated head of one of their victims so Doug could have sex with it, and helped him dispose of headless bodies. 
    Oh, Doug loved it! Did he love Carol? Did it matter?  Carol was doing whatever Doug told her to do.  
    She was a nurse. Carol was all about saving lives, not taking lives. 
    Carol knew she was doing wrong. She was doing murder. Carol called the cops. They didn’t believe her. So, she went to her ex-boyfriends for help. One of them survived. One of them didn’t. 
    Carol just wanted love. How far would she go to keep the man of her dreams? What if she got as hooked on sex and killing as he was? Would Carol ever be able to stop?
