On an overcast, wind swept day in January 1965, two teenage girls were raped and murdered on an isolated beach in Sydney s southern suburbs.
The discovery of their bodies the following day sparked a public outcry, media frency and one of the largest police investigations in Australian
history. To this date the deaths of the Christine Sharrock and Marianne Schmidt -notoriously know as the Wanda Beach Murders - remain
unsolved and the story behind the crime has never been told. In this book Alan Whiticker re-creates the lead up to the aftermath of the murders and provides a fascinating insight
into the history, lives and fate of Christine and Marianne.
