Lyn and Chris Dawson appear to have the perfect marriage. He's a star footballer and popular high school teacher. She's a devoted wife and mother. They share a beautiful home above Sydney's northern beaches. But when Lyn goes missing, dark secrets are buried. This is no fairytale, but a sordid story of strangely close twin brothers, teenage student lovers, and probable murder. The Australian's Hedley Thomas digs deep into a cold case which has been unsolved for 36 years, uncovering startling new evidence.

Customer Reviews

Far to repetitive

Good story, far too repetitive and far too long. Keeps going over the same points. Could do with a better producer and editor.

Trivial hearsay meets nosey neighbour

It’s hard to believe the author of this tripe hasn’t been sued for defamation. A total witch hunt full of insinuation, insult and accusations. Funny at first but then painfully irritating. Don’t waste your time.

Good, but far too long

The content in this podcast is great, lots of interviews and witnesses, and a really gripping story. However, as many of the other reviewers have stated, it’s just far too long. Episodes feel really repetitive after a while, and sometimes you only listen to a few sentences of an interview, and then Headley cuts in and says “we will listen to the rest of that in another episode“ and you feel like banging your head against a wall. Worth a listen, but don’t be afraid to skip an episode!
