Crims In Grass Castles: Keith Moor

The presumed murder of aspiring politician and whistleblower Donald Mackay in the Griffith Hotel car park is one of the most infamous episodes in Australian criminal history, an episode that eventually cracked open one of the country’s largest drug rings and gave the town of Griffith a notoriety it would rather forget.

This 1989 book about the whole sordid episode has been revised and updated to coincide with the current series of Underbelly and is a cracking good read as well as a stellar piece of investigative journalism from the Walkley award-winning Moor. Although decades have passed, there still remain too many unanswered questions – but this is probably the closest we’ll get to the truth.
