The Pyjama Girl and Other Bizarre Australian Crimes

The Pyjama Girl and Other Bizarre Australian Crimes. Sydney: Horwitz, 1962.

The Pyjama Girl mystery had many elements to arouse the appetite for bizarre crime, including the haunting fate of the unknown girl whose corpse was not identified for ten years and the foreign husband-murderer with links to fascism.

The case spawned numerous books and magazine articles for decades after the event.
