A new kind of............. wait there is nothing new in this book!
on April 19, 2011
I would recommend this book only to someone who isn't already familiar with the story. There are absolutely no new facts in this book. The entire story has already been told through the recent 5th Estate program (CBC) and through various news outlets in Ontario (newspapers, daily news). Don't get me wrong the book is very well-written with a most excellent flow and would be a fantastic read for someone who hasn't been hiding under a rock for the last few years.
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.
