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.
Just loved this book. Having travelled the Stuart Highway many times and experienced Fran's pies, it was easy to relate to the places and people mentioned. It was funny, sad, but mostly an easy and thoroughly enjoyable read. Congratulations, will recommend it far and wide!
Amazing story that flowed so well. Totally possible due the country we live in, the people we meet and those we never meet, but can associate with. Great to have real localities that tell the story of our country that 99.9% of people can't relate to, but it's out there if you take the time to "smell the roses" as the saying goes.
Fact is stranger than fiction This is a fascinating story of a remote Australian town on a major highway on the edge of the "never never" Based on a factual account of an Australian mystery it is well written, entertaining and makes compelling reading. I couldn't put it down. You'll want to visit Larrimah just to savour the jam and scones.
