Robin Bowles


Widely regarded as one of Australia’s foremost true crime writers, Robin Bowles has been investigating the stories behind the headlines for nearly two decades.

In 1996, Robin read a newspaper article about the alleged suicide of country Victorian housewife, Jennifer Tanner. Guessing there might be a bigger truth behind that case, Robin closed her PR business for a year to research and write her first book, Blind Justice.

She’s written many bestselling true crime books since then including the definitive books on Jaidyn Leskie – Justice Denied – and on the disappearance and alleged murder of British tourist Peter Falconio – Dead Centre.

Rescuing Tara is the first of Robin’s short true crime stories to be published in the CDP Crime Shots series.
