‘We have a dead second wife and a missing first wife…we’ve got a huge problem here.’ Detective Peter Seymour
Seven Bones is the story of one of the more bizarre murder investigations in Australia’s criminal history. Two wives die in suspicious circumstances: co-incidence or, as husband Thomas Keir describes it, ‘bad luck’?
Arriving on the scene, Detective Peter Seymour realised he was dealing with the world’s unluckiest husband or a serial wife killer. Keir’s ‘grieving husband’ act was suddenly in question. The investigation revealed Thomas Keir was a man so jealous he hated even his own baby son touching his wife. A man who thought he could commit the perfect crime and publically taunted the police.
Written through the eyes of Detective Peter Seymour, Seven Bones, follows his relentless pursuit of justice through the drama that would take fifteen years to reach its final conclusion.
Readers say..”I found Seven Bones to be the best true crime novel (of many) I have read This is an incredible story, told in a way that is riveting and jaw-dropping. Written with attention to detail, compassion, and the same determination for ‘warts and all’ truth which Peter Seymour demonstrated during his investigations – I felt for him as much as for Jean, Rosalind and their families.”
“This is a book that once I started reading, just could not put it down, the dedication of this Officer and the Homicide squad was amazing, it may have taken them years but they never give up to find justice for this beautiful young woman whose life was cut so cruelly from her. A Must Read thoroughly recommend this!”
