Format: Paperback
This is one of the worst books I have read this year. The author, Stevie Cameron, had been commisioned to write this book in 2002 when evidence of Robert W. Pickton first came to light. It seems as though Kroft Canada put a deadline in place for the book to be finished regardless of the details of the Pickton case. As the crown case against Pickton is still in trial, much of the details of the evidence and the facts surrounding the case remain under a publication ban. Therefore Ms. Cameron filled her book with few details about Robert Pickton and facts or stories surrounding the case, but many uninteresting memoirs of how she spent her time in Vancouver and personal refections of her family during those years. I have learned more about Robert W. Pickton in a single National Post newpaper article than I did reading this book.

This book had a very odd release date...given that the trial is ongoing and we cannot know the outcome, it's rather dissatisfying. I suppose it was always going to be! It's almost as though it was thought that enough time had already been spent and that the book must be therefore be published anyway. I see Stevie Cameron has "The Pig Farm" due to be published next year, presumably wrapping up with the verdict and an indepth analysis of the case.

This book is the story of how the author approached her research and her own experiences in examining the case (complete with struggles with housing and car troubles), which was interesting to a certain extent but not what I expected. I (perhaps naively) expected more details about Pickton's life during the years the women were going missing, the case against him, how the investigation was carried out, possible accomplices or defences...

I feel rather short changed and wish I'd waited for "The Pig Farm"...(or read the Vancouver Sun's archives instead?)

Format: Paperback
Having read a lot of material about the Robert Pickton case, I was very excited to dive into this book, and get to know more about the man convicted of killing six women.
However, I found myself learning more about the author and her journey to dig up information - very little of which was actually included in the book.
There were little tid bits here and there about Pickton's life as a child, and his interactions with others. But they were few and far between, and the author skims through them, to get back to writing about herself.
She mentions many times that she can't tell us much about the case because of the publication ban. I don't know what that ban includes, but I would have relished in Pickton's back story. His childhood, teenage life, social life, and exactly how police tore up the farm piece by piece.

Instead this book almost seems like a teaser for what will surely be a series of publications on the subject.
