The Retriever : Australia has the highest per capita rate of parental child abduction in the world - every year about 150 children are spirited away against court orders. For more than three decades, private investigator Keith Schafferius has been the man parents turn to when their child has been abducted by their ex-spouse. An expert in child retrieval cases, over the years Keith has built up a vast array of contacts, paid thousands of dollars in bribes to officials, appeared on international wanted lists and been shot at and pursued by police. His intricate and risky retrieval missions have taken him to countries including Poland, Yemen, Mexico and the Philippines, and resulted in over a hundred abducted children being reunited with the desperate parent left behind. A gripping mix of memoir, thriller and true crime, this is the powerful and moving story of families torn apart by parental abduction. It is about the heartbreak and determination of left-behind parents, the children caught in the middle, and the man who played a part in bringing some of them home.
