Life and Death in the Petrie Terrace Gaol: The Prisoners of Toowong Cemetery 1876-82:

Twenty-three men died in Brisbane Gaol, Petrie Terrace, during 1875-82, and were buried in Toowong Cemetery. Find out how a horribly bungled Brisbane hanging drew the attention of Downing Street; How the 'Aboriginal Ned Kelly' ended up in Berlin; Why a university still has the heads of two of the executed prisoners; and how a convicted child molester became Queensland's executioner.

This book is an update of the 'Prisoners of Toowong Cemetery' publication from Inside History (2006).
