It was a murder mystery writer's worst nightmare come true. In 1929 Arthur Upfield, Australia's premier crime writer, plotted a perfect murder for his novel The Sands of Windee.
To his horror, one of his friends, Snowy Rowles, put the scheme into deadly effect even before the book was published. The result was Western Australia's most sensational murder trials of the 1930s.
