520    "A gripping expose of a notorious cold case 1978. An 
       idyllic beachside community. A series of abductions and 
       rapes. So what happened to Trudie Adams? Back in the 1970s,
       Sydney's Northern Beaches felt like a slice of paradise to
       those lucky enough to live there. Bordered on one side by 
       the glistening blue of the Pacific, and on the other by 
       stunning rugged bushland, it was the kind of place where 
       everyone knew everyone. No wonder the area was known as 
       'the Insular Peninsula'. So, when a popular local girl, 18
       -year-old Trudie Adams, disappeared one night while 
       hitchhiking home from the surf club dance, her family, 
       friends and community were devastated. It just seemed 
       wrong that something so terrible could happen in a place 
       so perfectly picturesque. But as police began to 
       investigate, the dark underbelly of the peninsula was 
       exposed. It was a place where surfers ran drugs home from 
       Bali, teenagers hitchhiked everywhere due to a lack of 
       public transport, predatory men prowled the streets, and 
       countless young women were abducted and raped, crimes 
       rarely reported or, if they were, rarely investigated. 
       Inspired by the Walkley Award-shortlisted #1 podcast and 
       acclaimed ABC TV series, and containing information never 
       previously revealed, Barrenjoey Road is a compelling 
       expose of why the disappearance of Trudie Adams was never 
       solved. It takes us all the way to the top, from a 
       criminal perpetrator with a lifelong record and links to 
       organised crime who was never formally accused, to police 
       corruption at the highest level."--|cProvided by Freading.
