Eddie Russell: The Madness Locker

Posted on: Mon 10 Apr 2023

On Boxing Day 2006, Australians were shocked at the news that the body of an elderly woman was discovered inside a wheelie bin at her Sydney home.  She had survived the horrors of WWII and the holocaust only to die in a quiet, leafy Australian suburb.  Author Eddie Russell’s book The Madness Locker is based on that Boxing Day finding, becoming historical crime fiction portrayed within a powerful story.
