The unsolved mystery of who killed Jeanette and Harvey Crewe in their Pukekawa farmhouse in 1970 continues to fascinate. It remains one of the most controversial cases in New Zealand legal history. The murders spawned two trials, two appeals, several books, a royal commission, a film, and – eventually – official findings of police corruption that shocked New Zealanders. It also resulted in a free pardon, the only time the New Zealand government has overruled the courts to set a prisoner free. Combining gripping narrative, detailed research and new insights from key players, this book tells the complete story of the case for the first time.
