This is a true story with remarkable twists and turns, and was one of the greatest murder mysteries in Australian history.

The 19th Century was a time when the new colony of Australia was trying to forge an identity, and it was settlers like Charles Langley and his family who worked tirelessly to bring this about.
Charles Langley who fathered seventeen children eventually moved to a selection in Rupanyup South, where he served as a councillor on the old Dunmunkle Shire Council.
The True Story of the Maryvale Murders is a book that you will not wish to miss.
