Description of this Book

Reprint, originally published 1995. A brief preface has been added, otherwise content is the same as the original publication. Public interest in this case will be heightened further when David Bain's retrial for the murders of five members of his family in Dunedin in June 1994 gets underway - this is scheduled for early 2008. The book is complemented by over 20 colour photographs, maps and drawings and also contains appendices. Joe Karam presents his argument in 'David and Goliath', the title giving an indication of the books contents - David Bain against much bigger adversaries being the police and the Crown. Karam examines the evidence in the case against David Bain and suggests alternative scenarios to the facts presented by the Crown. He also looks aat the evidence of the secret witness that never got to testify and the behaviour of the police involved in the investigation. Karam argues it was a murder/suicide with the father as the culprit. He puts forward a motive and supporting evidence for this theory.
