Meet Mark Tedeschi QC, author of Murder at Myall Creek.
The most sensational trial of mass murder in Australia’s legal history occurred in 1838 when eleven convicts and former convicts were put on trial for the murder of 28 aboriginal men, women and children at Myall Creek. The trial created enormous controversy at the time because it was virtually unknown for Europeans to be charged with the murder of Aboriginals. Murder at Myall Creek tells the story of the man, John Hubert Plunkett, who fought hard for justice and arguably did more to create modern-day civil rights in Australia than anyone else before or since.
Barrister and Crown Prosecutor for 35 years, Mark Tedeschi QC, has appeared in some of the most significant criminal cases in Australia.
