Murders and Mayhem at Salt Creek: The True Secrets

Self Publishing

Many articles have been written about the notorious murderer Malachi Martin, but over time, like Chinese whispers, the story has veered from the truth. Using references and newspapers of the day, I have tried to bring his story closer to the events at isolated Salt Creek, South Australia.

This book also briefly covers two other stories. One is of Martin’s neighbor at the Adelaide gaol, Elizabeth Woolcock, the only woman to be executed at the gaol, and the other is the story of a distant non blood relative of Martin’s, William Henry Franncis, who also met his fate at the Adelaide gaol.
