Listen to the last episode:

In September 1988 a campaign of terror was unleashed upon Perth’s Chinese community through a series of targeted firebombings that decimated a number of restaurants around the city.

The motive behind the attacks was impossible to ignore, but it would take a drastic escalation of violence for WA police to start taking the firebombs seriously.

Once they finally started to piece the crimes together and close in on the culprits, police realised they’d happened upon a plot in the making that was a lot more sinister than the destroying of restaurants. 


Guest: Alex Mann and Crispian Chan
