Summary
Far away from any World War II battlefront, the citizens of Melbourne were living in terror of a serial killer - the Brownout Strangler. May 1942, Melbourne is torn between fearing Japanese invasion and reveling in the carnival atmosphere brought by the influx of American servicemen. But it is also a city gripped by terror - a serial killer is on the loose in the darkened streets, and three women have already been brutally strangled. The killer is an American soldier, Eddie Leonski, who has a twisted fascination with female voices, especially when they are singing. After an intense manhunt, Leonski is arrested then tried in Melbourne and hanged at Pentridge Gaol
