The real-life story of one of New Zealand’s biggest professional swindles – and the young girls who came across their crucial mistake – with true crime writer, Scott Bainbridge.

In 1966, international con-man Robert Gardner brought a highly skilled crew of grifters to New Zealand to pull off one of the biggest swindles in the country’s history.

In association with our friends at Featherston Booktown and introduced by Peter Biggs.

About Scott Bainbridge

Scott Bainbridge is one of New Zealand's foremost investigative true crime authors. His fascination with missing persons cases was born out of overhearing a conversation between his parents about the case of teenage hitchhiker Mona Blades. Since then, he has spent many thousands of hours investigating the cases of missing people, with his work leading to several cold cases being reopened. The Fix is his eighth book.

This event is part of the Featherston Booktown Sunday double header. Come at midday for the first event with Jenny Pattrick and Cristina Sanders, then stay on for a light lunch featuring freshly made sandwiches, home baking (and gluten-free treats) along with tea and coffee provided by the Featherston Booktown Country Tea & Cakes volunteers team. $8 for a hot drink and either a sweet or savoury item of food.

This event is part of Yarns in Barns: Wairarapa Festival of Reading which takes place between 14–23rd October, 2022. This organic, community-led festival hosts an eclectic range of events for all ages in venues from Masterton to Martinborough. View the full festival programme at
