Trace is a new true crime podcast from the ABC. Mother of two, Maria James, was stabbed to death in the back of her suburban Melbourne bookshop in June 1980. Her killer has never been found.
Presented by ABC investigative reporter, Rachael Brown, Trace sifts through evidence to see whether police missed anything at the time, revisits suspects, and finds a new one of its own.
Two episodes in and I’m gripped. Warning: it’s gruesome and terrifying in parts.
