Deal With the Devil : The Death of Matthew Leveson and the Ten-Year Search for the Truth


Product Description

What Mark and Faye Leveson have endured to find out the truth about the mysterious death of their son Matt is unfathomable. For the ten years after Matt’s disappearance, in September 2007, they tirelessly searched bushland for his body and doggedly pursued the man they believed responsible, Michael Atkins. Matt’s older boyfriend always denied involvement with their son’s disappearance, despite the compelling evidence stacked against him. Atkins was, in fact, a serial liar. But to expose his deceit and achieve their main objective, to find Matt’s body, the Levesons agreed in late 2016 to make a deal with the devil. In an unprecedented move, Atkins received immunity from prosecution in exchange for revealing where he buried Matt. He also claimed that Matt died of a drug overdose and wasn't murdered.

''Deal with the Devil'' tells the story of the Leveson family from the journalist who was in close contact with them throughout the police’s four-year reinvestigation of Matt’s case. This is a firsthand account of the Levesons’ ordeal, from their harrowing decision to grant Atkins immunity to the extraordinary search for Matt’s body in the Royal National Park. There is also an unnerving insight into Atkins’ past, as well as exclusive interviews with his ex-boyfriends, lovers and former friends. But, above all, what emerges is a portrait of a loving family, and of two parents bound by their public quest to achieve justice for their son.
