AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Eight-year-old Alice McDonald has gone missing from her home in suburban Melbourne. Her disappearance arouses public outrage and private anguish. Amongst the general public, the case becomes a 'cause celebre' as it drags in its wake ancient fears, new dangers and enduring prejudices. And for the two women who, in different ways, both 'know' Alice, her vanishing raises more personal questions.'
