Author Name: 

Red Centre, Dark Heart won the Ned Kelly for True Crime this year, and it is one of those books that I've been trying to get to read.  A series of chapters about notorious criminal events in Australia, it starts out with the escape and subsequent cannabilism of a group of convicts in Tasmania in 1822.  But more on each chapter in a subsequent review.
