“What a terrific book this is—technically of the true-crime genre, but so lucid and calm, it raises the bar. In a world where uninformed opinion flourishes, author Ann Brocklehurst keeps her head and treats a ghastly story with facts, fairness and dignity.”—Christie Blatchford, National Post courts columnist and author of Life Science
“Brocklehurst deftly pulls together the disturbing narrative of Tim Bosma’s murder and the trial of his killers. Dark Ambition avoids sensationalism while exploring a horrible, fathomless crime. A compelling page-turning read.”—Robyn Doolittle, Globe and Mail journalist and author of Crazy Town: The Rob Ford Story

Top Customer Reviews
The author seems to acknowledge the lack of new info near the end of the book when she cites the publication bans that are in place and the fact that none of Smich/Millard's friends were willing to talk. To me, that type of content is a minimum expectation for a book in the true crime genre. But, as a I said, there is almost nothing new in this book to seasoned trial watchers.
To be fair, this is still an interesting read.To me, she should have waited until the other trials are over and the publication bans are no longer in place and presumably "insiders" on the case would be willing to talk.
