Foul Play Presents: Trace by Rachael Brown

Monday 10th September 2018
19:00 at Waterstones, London - Tottenham Court Road

Join Rachael Brown, the creator, investigator, and host of international, award-winning #1 podcast, Trace, examining the 1980 murder of Maria James, which has been left unsolved for nearly 40 years. Her new book of the same title examines her efforts to unmask James’s killer, and how along the way she uncovered systemic abuse in the Australian Catholic Church, cult activities, and claims of incompetence and corruption at the highest levels.

As with other true-crime sensations such as Serial, Making a Murderer and I’ll Be Gone in the Dark, Trace uncovers fresh evidence that may lead to the reopening of this chilling case. 

At this event, Rachael will be discussing what compelled her to take this case on, how her podcast helped her uncover crucial evidence, and how her work could help one family find justice.

This event is presented by Foul Play, a new kind of non-sensational true crime magazine. Published quarterly, it contains no crime scene photos, no hero worship, and no serial killer cover stars. Instead, what you'll find are thought-provoking long-form features, beautiful photography and plenty of advice on what you should be watching, reading and listening to. You can find out more at

Tickets are £5 or £14.99 including the book. You can also redeem your ticket against a book purchase on the night.
