In the early hours of September morning in 1988 a mother answered the phone to face an unspeakable nightmare. Her daughter, Janine Balding, had been found brutally raped and drowned in a shallow dam just off a freeway in Sydney's western suburbs. Janine, a vivacious 20 year old, had been abducted from a busy suburban carpark by five street kids, the youngest of whom was 14 years old. What was to follow for a close-knit country family is a tragic story, as well as an indictment of aspects of the legal system and society in general. In this book, Beverley Balding describes how she was catapulted into a surreal world of convicted criminals, court hearings, police investigations and media interviews. She recounts her horror as well as the many bitter disappointments and frustrations she endured over a peroid of five years while the case against her daughter's killers unfolded slowly in the courts.
