We are fascinated by true crime stories.

Psychologists say one of the main reasons for our obsession is that it gives us an opportunity to feel relieved when we discover someone else is the victim! But while living in a world of rapid social, political, economic, and technological change, true crime can also provide us with comfort and reassurance when we discover ‘good overcomes evil’ and that ‘crime really does NOT pay’.

In this collection of Crazy Aussie Crims, some of whom Mal Walden has met personally, the reader is taken on a journey of discovery of some of Australia’s most notorious, and bumbling, criminals.

Mal Walden is a former journalist and television news presenter based in Melbourne. On his retirement from television in 2013 he was reported as the longest continually serving face on Australian television. Forty-three of those years were presenting News. He has published 3 books, all with Brolga Publishing, including his memoir The Newsman, Good News! and Don’t Piss In My Pocket and Tell Me It’s Raining.
