interesting look at Canadian cases
on July 17, 2013
This author provides ample details and sources to support his contention that Canadian serial killers are not only active, but (unfortunately) numerous. The book also takes a brief look at the successes and failures of the criminal justice system and thus would be useful to students and professionals alike. For the average reader or true crime reader, this book is both interesting and informative. One curious note, however - the author refers to Dr. Charles Smith as "renowned" whereas a better description might be "disgraced." Residents of Ontario may recall his notoriety after convictions in as many as 13 of 20 cases were questioned by the province in 2007 because the "expert" opinion of the pathologist was more based on assumption than scientific fact.
