  • Riassunto

  • Please note: This series contains mature themes and listener discretion is advised.

    In 1984, Detective Eric O'Malley investigated the bizarre deaths of a young couple, their bodies found naked by the side of a creek in Sydney's northern suburbs. Shortly before their demise, O'Malley learned, the pair had attended a swingers' party.

    The case was barely open before it was deemed an accident. But O'Malley knew it was murder. He just couldn't prove it.

    Thirty-five years later, O'Malley is found dead in his flat in what looks like a drug overdose. But his son James knows something's amiss. His dad was close to solving that case after all these years. And someone else knew it.

    To track down his father's killer, James must find the men and women who were there on the fateful night when that young couple died. This was the night of 'The Goodbye Party' - and uncovering its secrets will lead James down a dark path, filled with horrific twists and turns.

    Inspired by Sydney's real-life Bogle-Chandler case, playwright Louis Nowra (writer of Australian classics Cosi, Radiance and The Golden Age) creates an enthralling multicast audio drama, featuring an exceptional cast including Ben Oxenbould (Deep Water, Wolf Creek), Steve Bisley (Water Rats, Mad Max), and Aaron Pedersen (Mystery Road, Jack Irish).

Great acting, suspenseful

This story sucks you in from the 1st episode and is a very easy to listen to podcast. Loved that it was a full cast as well.

Twisty Mystery

This was an interesting Aussie murder mystery. A retired cop finds his father dead in his apartment, a needle nearby. He refuses to believe the police assumption that his father was an addict and begins his own investigation into how his died. Taking up a case his father hadn’t solved, he discovers new friends, some enemies and that he knew little about his father’s life. Twists and turns abound with a shocking ending. Well done, not for kids and a great cast and production.

Totally Gripping

Really enjoyed this one. Each chapter flows beautifully into the next. These chapters add brick after brick to the mystery. recording is well done, sound effects and music color the storey. Very nice acting as well. Voices are varied and cast well.

technical problems

No matter where I went or what I listened on, this book was extremely difficult for me to follow. It would constantly cut out and the recording would stop. It was a struggle to get it going again in the right place. I know I missed some large chunks of the story. Worst, I missed the last 8 minutes of the final episode.
The story was very interesting and it was extremely well acted. It moved a little slowly. My only complaint is the technical difficulty I experienced.

Compelling story telling

As always, Louis Nowra (one of Australia's best playwrights) has written a brilliant story set in Sydney about murder and intrigue in the fringes of mainstream society. Featuring some of Australia's best actors, this story works brilliantly as radio/ voice performance although it could easily be adapted to film/ mini-series format. The 12 half hour episodes are easy to listen to. The production has a great internal rhythm apart from the occasional elongated beat pause which wasn't really necessary, and it was easy to become immersed in the world of the story. Worth buying and listening to.

Fair dinkum tale mate

I certainly hope that there are more of these in the pipeline. Aussie noir is new to me but it'd make a great new genre.
