Some of the dinner guests - most of them university students - had heard rumours of the plan. Nobody warned Joe Cinque. He died one Sunday, in his own bed, of a massive dose of Rohypnol and heroin. His girlfriend and her best friend were charged with murder.Helen Garner followed the trials in the ACT Supreme Court. Compassionate but unflinching, this is a book about how and why Joe Cinque died.

It probes the gap between ethics and the law- examines the helplessness of the courts in the face of what we think of as evil- and explores conscience, culpability, and the battered ideal of duty of care.It is a masterwork from one of Australias greatest writers.
