Milat: Inside Australias Biggest Manhunt - A Detectives Story by Clive SmallMilat - the serial killer who preyed on young hitchhikers. The backpackers - the innocent victims of a brutal murderer. Belanglo - a place that became synonymous with pure evil.
It was the biggest and most complex manhunt in Australian history, an investigation that gripped a nation. Behind the many false leads and dead ends, precious clues emerged that pointed to one man.
This is the story of how Ivan Milat was caught. Clive Small takes us inside the operation he led as his team painstakingly pieced together the evidence that put Milat behind bars. But questions remain. Did he act alone? Were there other victims? How much did his family know? And what of his great-nephew, who brutally killed a young man in 2010?
Chilling, forensic, compassionate - this is the definitive story that could only be told by someone at the centre of the police operation. It is also a powerful argument for the investigation of more than a hundred unsolved murders.

When a grey-haired Milat confronts Mr Small during their chance encounter, Mr Small assures him he knows Milat killed the travellers himself.

The man who headed up the investigation that caught Ivan Milat has slammed the Seven Network series about the convicted serial killer, saying parts of it were pure fiction. Catching Milat , a dramatised mini-series about the investigation into the backpacker murders in NSW's Belanglo State Forest, concluded on Sunday night. Former assistant police commissioner Clive Small, who was the superintendent on the case at the time, said the role of detective Paul Gordon, played by actor Richard Cawthorne, was "pure fiction from start to finish". Small said Gordon was not the man who caught Milat but there was a team of more than police that worked extremely hard to catch the killer. According to the former detective, Gordon was only on the case for about five months, as opposed to the two years shown in the teleseries. And I think the show has also shown a fair deal of disrespect to the family and friends of the victims and I think that's a bit unnecessary and upsetting," Small said on the Kyle and Jackie O radio show on Monday.
