In 1979, the case of the Body in the Freezer rattled Adelaide’s legal profession to its core. Flamboyant, gay, criminal barrister Derrance Stevenson is found sealed in his kitchen’s deep freeze, having been shot in the back of the head. His baby-faced lover David Szach, just 19 years old, is convicted of murder and serves 14 years in prison.

Problem is, for 40 years David has fiercely maintained his innocence. Now, with his appeal soon to be heard, David wants investigative crime journalist Debi Marshall to re-examine his case and what he claims is a gross miscarriage of justice.

Debi’s determination to fight for justice for victims and their families started after she helped track down the killer of her own partner in 1992. Debi’s emotionally raw and confronting story is also told across the series.
