A former federal judge lied in court rather than pay a small fine – and ended up in jail. A woman sets off on a holiday cruise, takes some drugs from strangers – and ends up dead. Journalists Fiona Harari tells the extraordinary story of Marcus Einfeld and Teresa Brennan while Geesche Jacobsen reconstructs the horrifying events of Diane Brimble’s last hours. They talk to Jane Hutcheon.
