Review

A NATIONAL BESTSELLER

“A page-turning thrill.”
Publishers Weekly

“The authors have done a masterful job of crafting the true story like a crime novel … chilling and compelling.”
Fast Forward Weekly

“An authoritative account of the murders that rocked this city.”
Medicine Hat News

Runaway Devil tells a story you don’t forget…. gripping … I also commend Zickefoose and Remington on humanizing the victims.”
Peterborough Examiner

“A great read … powerful, scary, maddening, but you can’t put it down.”
— Gord Gillies, Global TV Calgary

“In spite of severe legal restrictions, Runaway Devil effectively details … a shocking Canadian triple murder… it brings to life the characters — the victims, the criminals and the supporting cast. This book does a better job than many in the genre.”
Winnipeg Free Press

“Well written, excellent, highly recommended.”
— Reg Hampton, CTV News Calgary

“The book is a cautionary tale on several fronts: the perils of the Internet, Goth culture, heavy-metal music, violence in film.”
National Post

“Dogged reporting had led the pair to countless scoops and insights into the bizarre case even before the girl was taken to trial and found guilty of murder….[it’s] as full a picture as we are likely to get into how the unimaginable happened.”
Calgary Herald

“Expert journalistic handling … Runaway Devil will have you checking the contents of your daughters’ iPod and watching how much time she spends on social networking.”
January magazine

“Elegantly crafted and written, Runaway Devil is a fine attempt to explain the inexplicable.”
— Elliott Leyton, author of Sole Survivor: Children Who Murder Their Families

“A finely constructed narrative of a horrific crime that shocked a nation … never again will I see youths hanging around a mall with nothing to do and not think about JR and Jeremy.”
— Nick Pron, author of Lethal Marriage: The Unspeakable Crimes of Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka
