Five Drops of Blood


By Paul Wilson and Dianne McInnes
In March 1998, four directors of the Cat Protection Society of Queensland drove to their chairperson's house to discuss crucial items on the agenda. They heard the strained barking of a security dog and the howls of sixteen hungry cats. A terrible smell hit them as they climbed out of their car - it led to the decomposing body of Dr Kathleen Marshall, slumped in the veterinary clinic she had created under the house.

The book details the subsequent trial and imprisonment of palmist and spiritualist Andrew Fitzherbert. His conviction, based solely on DNA evidence, was a first in Australia and only the third in the world

The Fitzherbert support group believes in Andrew's innocence and is fighting for his release. Is the real killer roaming free?

Professor Paul Wilson is a criminologist and forensic psychologist at Bond University.

Dianne McInnes writes in many different genres including biographies, history and a Papua New Guinean encyclopaedia. This is her first true crime book.
