Nero is pleased to announce the acquisition of a new true crime book by journalist and broadcaster Helen Thomas, to be released in mid-2018. In Murder on Easey Street, Thomas examines a notorious cold case: the killing in 1977 of two young Melbourne women, Suzanne Armstrong and Susan Bartlett, who were brutally stabbed to death in their home on Easey Street, Collingwood. In a heart-breaking detail, Armstrong’s infant son was alone in the house for several days before the crime was discovered. Inquiries into the murder are ongoing: in January this year police offered a $1-million reward for information. The book will include interviews with key figures in the investigation of the case, which shook Melbourne to its core. Nero associate publisher Julian Welch says: “In this exciting new book Helen Thomas brings her considerable journalistic talents to one of Australia’s most tragic murders. The result will be a compelling study of a horrific crime that has, to date, escaped discovery and punishment, and a sensitive portrayal of the many people it has affected.” For more information about Murder on Easey Street, please email email@example.com.
