Call Me Cruel by Michael Duffy

Paul Wilkinson was Aboriginal Community Liaison Officer at Redfern Police Station when he began an affair with trainee nurse Kylie Labourchardiere. Both were married. They exchanged over 20,000 text messages in four months and Kylie became pregnant and threatened to tell Wilkinson’s wife unless he left her. Wilkinson killed Kylie but has never told police where she is buried.

He was an unusually manipulative and inventive person who brought devastation into the lives of many of the people he came across, as this detailed and moving account makes clear.
