When eccentric real estate tycoon Peter Shallard was found dead in his North Caulfield mansion in 2005, investigations into his private life revealed a long list of enemies, conflicts and potential suspects. The crime scene was equally baffling. Was it an act of bondage gone wrong, or had it simply been staged to appear that way?
Although Peter lived an unconventional lifestyle, it wasn’t clear why anyone would want him dead. In the quest for answers, police tapped the phone of Peter’s girlfriend, Shirley Withers, and discovered she might know more about who was responsible than she was letting on.
