Lyn and Chris Dawson appear to have the perfect marriage. He's a star footballer and popular high school teacher. She's a devoted wife and mother. They share a beautiful home above Sydney's northern beaches. But when Lyn goes missing, dark secrets are buried. This is no fairytale, but a sordid story of strangely close twin brothers, teenage student lovers, and probable murder. The Australian's Hedley Thomas digs deep into a cold case which has been unsolved for 36 years, uncovering startling new evidence.

This is a fantastic podecast Well done Hedley you did an amazing job. More please.
If you want to become completely engulfed a true crime case this is the podcast for you. This very extensive investigation into the disappearance and probable murder of Lyn Dawson in Sydney, Australia is thorough, thoughtful, professional and heartbreaking. Hedley Thomas is a wonderful host that appeared to treat Lyn's family with upmost respect during the duration of the podcast. I'm really glad that the popularity of this podcast has somewhat helped gain momentum within this 38 year old case. The only minor downside of this podcast is the how in-depth it is; no stone goes unturned! This can made it a bit of a drag at times, and quite repetitive. Regardless, this is a very well produced podcast that definitely deserved the hype. I sincerely hope justice can be served for Lyn & her family.
As a Northern Beaches girl growing up just after Lyns generation I found this podcast fascinating and a very good representation of the culture of the NB some years ago now! My husband went to Cromer High and his quite a bit older sister also went to Cromer high and experienced a lot of similar issues and this was a decade or More after this case occurred! Hedley Thomas did an amazing job of this podcast and has brought forward justice for Lyn and her family!
