|Description||How did a father with criminal history come to be on trial for the brutal murder of his wife? It began with a phone call to Brisbane police on 20 April 2012. Allison, wife of real-estate agent Gerard Baden-Clay, was missing. When investigating officers arrived at the family home, in one of the city s wealthiest suburbs, a neatly dressed Gerard had been getting the couple s three daughters ready for school. Scratches on his face were shaving cuts, he told them. Police weren t so sure and opened one of Australia s biggest ever missing persons investigations. Ten days after Gerard reported Allison s disappearance, the body of the former beauty queen was discovered on a creek bank 14 kilometres from home. The Murder of Allison Baden-Clay is written by the investigative journalist who covered the case from the start. It weaves together exclusive interviews and police and court records to explain how a father with criminal history came to be on trial for a brutal murder. It s also a story about everyday choices and their consequences.|
