I first learned of this incredible story when I listened to the podcast Lost in Larrimah. The book gives so much more detail and insight as the authors have done even more research and investigation into the unsolved Australian outback mystery. How does a man, who lives in a remote Northern Territory town with just 12 residents, simply disappear without a trace.
Through the authors' vivid writing, you can feel the oppossive heat, taste red bulldust and shiver in the outback darkness. I laughed out loud many times and other times stopped just to absorb the true craziness of the outback. A blind crocodile, endless snakes, exotic birds, a life sized Pink Panther and the tall stories that are mostly true. At times I feared for the authors' safety as they relentless pursued the truth of what happened to Paddy Moriarty.
