“The ending will leave you reeling, long after you turn the final page. Absolutely fantastic.”
Melanie Calvert is the author of Freycinet, a novel, and the true crime account Tasmania’s Beaumaris Beach Mystery: What Happened to Nancy and Victoria?
Freycinet is about obsession, love and cruel murder in the Tasmanian wilderness.
In Freycinet (pronounced Frey-sin-ay), Ginny O’Byrne is enchanted but also strangely horrified by the looming peaks of the Hazards mountains as she and her fiancé, Julian, arrive at Freycinet National Park. Ginny is even more frightened when she begins to experience gory, clairvoyant visions of two murdered young women. The next morning two women have disappeared into the untamed Tasmanian wilds. Within 24 hours, Ginny will be part of a massive Search and Rescue mission, surrounded by people who may in fact be responsible for the murder of the missing women, tormented by her gruesome visions, and embroiled in an eerie atmosphere that is becoming increasingly threatening.
The mystery of what happened to 26-year-old German tourist Nancy Grunwaldt and 20-year-old Italian tourist Victoria Cafasso remains unsolved two decades later. Nancy disappeared without trace and Victoria was found brutally murdered, stabbed over forty times, on Beaumaris’ lonely but beautiful beach. ‘Tasmania’s Beaumaris Beach Mystery’ reveals previously unrecorded details of these cases and potentially explosive revelations about the two young tourists’ fates in an attempt to answer: What happened to Nancy and Victoria?
