Ken Crispin is a former director of public prosecutions for the Australian Capital Territory, chairman of the Bar Association, and Supreme Court judge. He is the author of The Quest for Justice.

A baby disappears from a tent near Uluru in the sandy desert of central Australia. The Aboriginal trackers say she has been taken by a dingo. But, amid a melange of sinister rumors, suspicion falls on the parents, Lindy and Michael Chamberlain. There are no eyewitnesses, no body, no confession, no motive, and, apparently, credible evidence of their innocence. Yet, Lindy is convicted of murder and her husband is convicted of concealing her crime. Providing an authoritative account of this saga, against a backdrop of Aboriginal spirituality and the Chamberlains’ own religious beliefs, this account examines the case and the evidence that subsequently emerged—blood, dingoes, clothing, and tracks—and asks disturbing questions: Why were so many convinced the Chamberlains were guilty? and How could the Australian legal system have failed so severely?
