Law & Order Week
View all events in this series
Andrew Rule and John Silvester, authors and creators of the Underbelly phenomenon, discuss the truths of true crime. Andrew Rule and John Silvester co-wrote The Age’s ‘Naked City’ column for many years until Rule moved across to the Herald-Sun at the beginning of 2011. The two also co-wrote (and self-published) the Underbelly book series of true crime that was later adapted for television by the Nine Network. This event will be hosted by Rhys Muldoon.
Update: we regret to inform that John Silvester is unable to attend this event. Crime journalist Tom Noble will be appearing in his stead.
In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups: the criminals, police, lawyers and correctional staff who have direct contact with crime, and the people who write about it. These are their stories.
