The father of Eric Edgar Cooke despised his baby son from the moment he saw him. Bashings and a hate-filled childhood followed for the boy with the crooked mouth, launching a personality unique among serial killers. He stalked the city of Perth for months, shooting strangers in the dead of night and using a sickening variety of weapons to steal the lives of strangers. Unknown to the terror-stricken citizens of this trusting, emerging metropolis, the young father of seven children who pulled the trigger had for years been doing other sinister night work. In a remarkable twist of fate, the killer's life tangled with that of 19-year-old John Button, whose 17-year-old girlfriend was killed. Both men confessed to that crime. This riveting investigation into the life and untold crimes of the last man to hang in Western Australia reveals new evidence to indicate that at least one innocent man, John Button, went to jail for one of Cooke's murders.

  19. BURGESS  RICHARD   Historical Notes by KEN  BYRON  `Guilty Wretch That I Am.' Echoes of Australian Bushrangers.  From the Death Row Memoirs of Richard Burgess 1829 - 1866.  Text illus./plates   throughout, references, bibliography and index.  pub.  Melb.  Macmillan   1984 1st.ed. or.cl. d/w. 4to. pp.176. It was almost 118 years since the notorious (to 1984) Australian bushranger Richard Burgess walked jauntily up to the gallows in Nelson Gaol on a chilly spring morning. The life of one of the colony's most literate evil-doers came to an abrupt, certain end as the gallows trapdoor clanged open and the noose jerked tight around the leathery, weary neck. Burgess had spent more than half his life in the colony and had mixed it with the most infamous names in the annals of Australian bushranging - Harry Power, 'Captain' Melville, a youthful Ned Kelly. He had rotted on Port Phillip prison hulks and been a 'foundation member' of the then new Pentridge Gaol. Later he had terrorised travellers on the lawless goldfields and highways. Through his memoirs - written in Nelson Gaol while awaiting trial and execution - Burgess comes across as a forceful, violent man. But it is his literary and intellectual talents which provide the most extraordinary details of life and crime during those hard, harsh, early days of European settlement. Ken Byron has used Burgess' memoirs as a basis for extensive historical notes on transportation, colonial society and law and order. His notes comprise half the book. Fine copy.   Price: $40.00
