This is a compelling story about a moment in the history of one of Australia's fastest growing cities, and as a resident of that city it has always worried me about how largely unaware we are of our city's history. Brisbane had, well? I'm not too sure, but the Mayne Inheritance paints a gruesome picture of a time and a person that all Brisbanites should be aware of. And that is the second tragedy.
Opening with a macabre mid-nineteenth century murder, The Mayne Inheritance unfolds like a gothic thriller. Was it the murder victim's money that founded patriarch Patrick Mayne's Queen Street business empire? Were the whispered accusations of murder and genetic madness true? For 150 years, scandal and mystery have surrounded the Maynes, a wealthy family who donated the magnificent site on which the University of Queensland now stands.
