“Carefully written with heart and respect.”
— The Canadian Journalism Project
“This book is a solid piece of journalism that meticulously records what is known about the murderous life of Russell Williams. . . . Its many insights into this rapist, fetishist and killer are frequently illuminating; and, given the unlikelihood that further information will become available, the book will probably remain the source on this bizarre case. . . . Appleby is an experienced and respected reporter. . . . Appleby provides us with a sound and reliable account of how Williams devastated so many lives.”
— The Globe and Mail
“Appleby marshals a convincing case––and the thesis certainly makes for a compelling book.”
— Christie Blatchford, The Globe and Mail

After reading the book I have serious doubts whether the author, Timothy Appleby has any of his own confidential human sources as all of the information that is said to have been relayed from said sources or leaked has already been available to the general public for quite some time. However, being a resident of Ontario involved with the law enforcement community I found the book to be an engaging quick read and I recommend it to anyone with an interest in true crime.
The detail of the murders and the attacks on the women are chilling.
Well worth the read.
Not only does this book put together all the events that lead up to Colonel Russell Williams downfall, it adds several items not published. It also makes an attempt at explaining how unique this case is and why it happened. This book is a keeper that people will read fifty years from now.
One of the best books I have ever read.
