Call Me Cruel. By: Michael
Duffy. Publisher: Allen & Unwin 2012
In the four months of their affair, Kylie
Labouchardiere and Paul Wilkinson
exchanged over 20,000 text messages.
She was a trainee nurse; he worked in the
New South Wales Police Force. Although
Wilkinson eventually killed his lover to
save his marriage, his main weapon was
always words. He was a frighteningly
convincing liar and left a trail of
devastation across the lives of many he
met. The victims of Wilkinson's stories
included his own family and those of
his wife and his lover. Kylie's grave has
never been found.

exceptional action -- a single act of bravery or significant
effort that benefited the people of the community around

contributions they make to our district."
