In the 1990s Australia, was rocked with the discoveries of several bodies of backpackers in the Belanglo State Forest in New South Wales. After a long search for the killer or killers Ivan Milat was arrested, accused and following trial incarcerated for the murders. Following an escape attempt, Milat was transferred to the maximum security prison Goulburn and confined in solitary confinement. Alistair Shipsey, a nephew of Milat's, struck up a correspondence with his uncle following his confinement in Goulburn and this book, The Milat Letters contains pages from that correspondence over the years. The letters cover Milat's numerous tries for appeal, his self-mutilation to achieve an appeal and his questioning of the evidence, in particular the DNA at the crime scenes which made the involvement of accomplices imperative and yet no evidence for those accomplices has been found. The book is not an appeal against injustice, more it is a look into the thoughts of a man accused of and incarcerated for being a serial killer.
