Ty would be gripped by panic when the body of a woman was found strangled partially naked and brutally beaten Six days later another woman was found dead and her body told the same horrific story A murderer was stalking the streets As women were warned not to travel alone an intense manhunt ensued Not long after a third woman was murdered American soldier Eddie Leon. Interesting deconstruction of Leonski and his reign of terror in Melbourne during the war I remembered my father and grandmother talking about him and how dad had known one of the murder victims who worked in Melb Uni how gran was scared to go to her job The 'reconstructions' were interesting and used with the material that Shaw had access to a good snapshot of what wartime Melbourne would have been like Also interesting to read the process around Leonski's capture trial as well as detailing the medical 'sane' or 'insane' judgement process
