Event description

Description

In 2017, Vincent O’Dempsey, along with his accomplice Garry Dubois, were sentenced to life in prison for the brutal murders of Barbara McCulkin and her two young daughters. It took over 40 years to bring them to justice. Feared for decades by criminals and police alike, Vincent O’Dempsey associated with convicted underworld figures behind major crimes such as the deadly Whiskey au Go Go nightclub firebombing and was also linked to a string of haunting cold cases.

Award-winning investigative journalist Matthew Condon has interviewed dozens of ex-cons, police and witnesses to put together a compelling picture of the calculating killer who spent his life evading the law before he was finally brought to justice. Join Matthew Condon for a fascinating talk on his new book The Night Dragon as he shines a light on a chilling chapter of Australia’s criminal past and the devastating legacy left in its wake.

Books will be available for purchase on the day, or bring your copy from home for Matthew to sign.

This event is presented as part of the Lord Mayor’s Writers in Residence series.
