Product description


A compelling story of 14-year-old Ronald Moffatt who was wrongly charged and convicted of murdering seven-year-old Wayne Mallette in 1956 Toronto. Nate Hendley weaves facts and narrative to cover all bases -flawed police procedure, the legal system, the hidden psyche of the real killer and Moffatt's story of his childhood before and his terror during and after his ordeal.

-Sharon Crawford, crime author of Beyond Blood and Beyond the Tipping Point.

The Boy on the Bicycle is an exceptional read and serves as a unique time capsule of the times and mores of post-WWII Toronto when murders were rare and sexual predators were practically unheard of. While Ronald Moffatt remains uncompensated for his wrongful conviction, it was Mr. Hendley's wish to finally tell Ron's story after these many years, which he has done in a direct, yet compassionate manner. Five stars!

The Miramichi Reader
