Abstract:

On 19 July 1995, two young men stumbled upon a partially clothed skeleton, wearing lingerie, high-heeled boots and jewellery, in a disused mineshaft near Bonnie Doon, Victoria. The sensational find was identified as the remains of a transsexual Melbourne prostitute Adele Baily, who had been missing for more than 17 years. How did Adele Baily die, and why was her body hidden in a forgotten mineshaft? Was there a connection between Adele Baily and country housewife Jenny Tanner who had been killed on a nearby property? The police think so. They believe the connection is one of their own former members, who was Jenny Tanner's brother-in-law and one of Australia's most notorious policemen, Dectiective Sergeant Denis Tanner. No justice delves into the sordid 1970's underworld in which Adele Baily lived and Denis Taner worked; a world of drugs, prostitution and corruption, where cops and robbers played by the same unwritten rules. The murderers have not been found - but they are known. Will justice previal and the guilty be prosecuted? Until then, there will be no justice for the innocent.
