In Outside the Law some of our best crime writers take you on a trip into the shadows of Australian society. You'll meet crooks who just can't help themselves; killers with twisted logic or hearts of darkness; and cops who daily walk the thinnest of lines to keep them at bay, and away from the rest of us.

This double dose of true crime digs beneath the polite exterior of modern Australian life to expose its chilling core. It includes the contribution by the cops who put their lives on the line day after day, and doesn't forget the private individuals who stand up and fight back. Take a trip into the shadows of Australian society with some of Australia's foremost true crime writers as they explore the effect on innocent victims caught in the wrong place at the wrong time.
