About this ebook

Beneath its peaceful exterior the city of Adelaide has a dark history. From the disappearance of the Beaumont children to the Snowtown killings in the 1990s, it has been home to a long series of brutal and baffling killings and abductions. In The Element of Need, acclaimed author James Bradley uses this long history of violence as the basis of a fascinating exploration not just of his own childhood and adolescence, but of the psychic landscape of this most haunted of cities.

Factual errors about the crimes, factual errors about South Australia. Overdone prose style. A tendency to project and universalise the author's own experiences.
