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?)
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.
