Enjoy a 2 Course Menu with Mike Munro

The Kenniff Brothers – Australia’s last bushrangers and Queensland’s equivalent of the Kelly Gang – graduated from petty crime, horse stealing and cattle duffing, to a ghoulish and violent murder. A Police Constable and a station manager were butchered, then incinerated, their remains stuffed into saddlebags, sparking a massive manhunt. Young Jim Kenniff and his brother Patrick were caught, charged and convicted. One hanged and the other spent 12 years behind bars. But were they tried justly? And did the right man swing? Mike Munro investigates the Kenriff brothers’ story – the circumstances surrounding the murders, the sensational trials, the public support, and the controversial evidence of Aboriginal tracker Sam Johnson. A story set against the backdrop of Federation and debates over capital punishment, it is one which is personal. If not for his grandfather illegally changing his name to distance himself from his notorious cousins, the author would be known as Mike Kenniff.
