商品説明

In April 2002, wealthy socialite Margaret Wales-King and her husband Paul King left their home in a leafy eastern suburb, dined with her son and his family and then disappeared into thin air. Twenty-five days later, after an investigation that swamped the front pages, their bludgeoned bodies were found in a shallow bush grave just outside Melbourne.

The family's grief was on full public display as speculation raged about the possible culprit and rumours about drugs, gambling and kidnapping did the rounds. Then Margaret's youngest son, Matthew, was arrested for the murders and his wife, Maritza, was charged with attempting to pervert the course of justice. In his confession, Matthew was adamant that he wasn't after the substantial inheritance, but that he felt totally disempowered by his mother who had alienated him from his family. In his mind he believed he had no choice but to commit one of the most uncommon and unsettling of crimes - matricide.

What is it about this case that continued to dominate the media long after the confession? Was it the association with wealth? Was it the enigmatic Maritza, whose role in the murders attracted huge speculation? Or was it simply that nice men like Matthew aren't meant to kill their mothers? Melbourne barrister Hilary Bonney has immersed herself in the world of the Wales-Kings, closely following the investigation, the subsequent legal processes, and the surrounding media furore. Perhaps most fascinating of all, she examines the psychology of a killer whose chilling act rocked a family, a class and a city to its very core.
