The crimes of Leonard Fraser, which made international headlines with the murder of a nine-year-old schoolgirl in 1999, are chronicled in this true-crime book. In April 1999, Keyra Steinhardt was beaten, raped, and murdered in a brazen daylight attack as she walked home from school in the Australian town of Rockhampton. When her killer, Leonard Fraser, finally led the police to her body two weeks later, it was the catalyst that went on to expose him as a murderous sexual predator, and in 2005 he was found guilty of the murders of Keyra and two other women, and found guilty of manslaughter in the death of another woman. The book discusses other crimes possibly committed by Fraser, as he is currently a suspect in at least three unsolved disappearances of women in Australia, though no remains have been found. He is serving four indefinite life sentences.
