Waikato-born Judy Williams worked hard for her Big OE: London, Paris, Rome, Gallipoli. Her adventures were dutifully recorded in a diary.
A trip journal that also details how the obsessive Tugga Tancred and his Kiwi mates turned Judy’s trip of a lifetime into a nightmare of sly sexual harassment. Their bad behavior went unnoticed, or was ignored by fellow passengers like Australian Andrew Hackett who chose to party with Tugga’s Mob. After all, they were in Europe for a good time, not a long time.
And what a time it was, until Tugga’s fixation ultimately led to murder; a crime that went unpunished for 30 years.
But few things remain hidden forever. The rediscovery of Judy’s hand-written diary sparks a trail of revenge the perpetrators never see coming.
