One of Canada’s finest crime reporters tells the whole story of the infamous Bernardo-Homolka case. NOW UPDATED WITH A NEW CHAPTER The sensational trials of Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka for abduction, rape, manslaughter and murder caused widespread controversy that continues to this day. The public was particularly outraged by the so-called “sweetheart deal” — the twelve-year sentence Homolka received as part of an agreement with government lawyers. Journalist Nick Pron gives us a comprehensive account of previously banned information about Bernardo and Homolka; about Homolka’s role in the death of her sister Tammy; of slip-shod police work and lack of communication that allowed Bernardo and Homolka the opportunity to murder schoolgirls Kristen French and Leslie Mahaffy; of the host of disturbing facts that were ruled inadmissable at the trial. A new chapter details the most recent, shocking facts of Homolka’s life in prison, including her alleged “special treatment,” such as private access to the prison’s beauty salon and gym, and rumoured liaisons in Kingston’s Prison for Women. Also detailed are her startling plans for the future. As Karla Homolka’s release date nears, many will reflect on her place in history, and on the Canadian legal system.

With two of North America's most notorious serial killer / sex slayers as its focus, Lynn Crosbie's novel, Paul's Case, dissects and pathologizes the horrific world of Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka.

This is compelling, moving, impossible work: a book which will shock, terrify, and anger you: a book which will break your heart and change you. You will never forget Paul's Case.

It is Easter weekend, 1999. A rookie uniformed cop responds to a call of "suspicious circumstances" in a working class neighbourhood inn Hamilton, Ontario. The cop meets a woman who is afraid to go near bags left for garbage outside the house of a man named Sam Pirrera. The cop confirms the woman’s worst fears: the bags contain pieces of human tissue. The call for backup goes out and a homicide investigation begins. But who is the victim? Where is the rest of the body? The prime suspect is Pirrera, a steelworker whose inner demons and capacity for violence are inflamed by his addiction to crack cocaine. He cannot tolerate women leaving him, but several have tried to do so, including his first wife, his current estranged wife, and two women who have recently visited his house on dates. How far is he willing to go to stop them? Led by driven investigator Peter Abi-Rashed, who once chased teenage Sam Pirrera on the streets of Hamilton’s east end, police ultimately learn the unspeakable truth, uncovering a case that shocks even veteran homicide and forensic investigators. Award-winning journalist and author Jon Wells takes readers into the heart of a real-life crime scene investigation and into the chaotic mind of a murderous control freak. Wells, Canada’s top true mystery writer, crafts a novelistic story that is true in every detail, at once darkly disturbing and deeply moving.

The core of the book revolves around the shifting nature of Ontario’s political landscape. In many ways this is a story of successive governments, ambitious politicians, diligent bureaucrats, and endless library reports straddling the decades. Their aim appears to have been making even better a system that, despite weaknesses, was clearly the best in Canada. Three distinctive trends emerged in Ontario librarianship after the 1930s: first, a growing sense of professionalism in librarianship; second, an enhanced sense of belonging to a pan-Canadian library movement that in 1946 would result in the formation of the Canadian Library Association; and third, a heightened awareness of the competing demands of high culture and popular culture. Public libraries became an important vehicle for promoting community, albeit with competing visions of “space and place,” as Canada generally and Ontario specifically experienced post-World War II immigration and the baby boom. As libraries approached the 21st century, the concerns of digital formats and the all-encompassing Internet intertwined to alter the book-centric "bricks and mortar" world of libraries. Nonetheless, public libraries were well placed to survive this new threat, just as they had with the challenges of radio, television, and telecommunication challenges in the 20th century.

The Pleasures of Woman, quite simply, is a book of medicine for human sexuality. It is a salve to cleanse and heal our wounds of confusion and anger, and dull sleepy our fears and self-obsessions. It is an intimate conversation from the heart to women and men of all ages, who have the heart to understand. It is a new erection of the classics in man, by rediscovering the nature and imaginations which make him classic. It is a mythological dream of woman, spawned from the alphabet of Adam's affections, and the depths of all men's needs. It is poetry written from and for the deepest, most sacred parts of the human being. Words that tenderly nourish the unblossomed flower of man's purest and sweetest sense of innocence and intimacy, by empowering, exalting and adoring women's most natural, intoxicating, and surreal dimensions of femininity; lavishing upon women the savory epiphanies and rapturous delights of eternal womanhood; and creating a world of joy, brightness, peace, and hope.

Canada is seen as a peaceful place, but this wake-up call shows us that there have been more than 60 serial killers in our history. Limited time offer. There are more than 60 serial murderers in Canadian history. For too long awareness of serial murder in Canada has been confined toWest Coastbutcher Clifford Olson and the "Schoolgirl Murderers" Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka, along with the horrific acts of pig farmer Robert Pickton. Unlike our American neighbours, Canada has been viewed as a nation untouched by the shadow of multiple murder. Then came Colonel Russell Williams and his bizarre homicides and serial home invasions, which were sensational news worldwide on the Internet and television and in scores of newspapers and magazines. The reason for Canada’s serial killer blackout is clear: until now such information has never been compiled and presented in a single concise work. ColdNorth Killers is a wake-up call. This detailed and haunting account of Canada’s worst monsters analyzes their crimes, childhoods, and inevitable downfalls. It is an indispensablecompendium for any true crime lover, criminologist, or law-enforcement officer.

As any police officer who has ever walked a beat or worked a crime scene knows, the street has its hot spots, patterns, and rhythms: drug dealers work their markets, prostitutes stroll their favorite corners, and burglars hit their favorite neighborhoods. But putting all the geographic information together in cases of serial violent crime (murder, rape, arson, bombing, and robbery) is highly challenging. Just ask the homicide detectives of the Los Angeles Police Department who hunted the Hillside Stranglers, or law enforcement officers in Louisiana who tracked the brutal South Side rapist. Geographic Profiling introduces and explains this cutting-edge investigative methodology in-depth. Used to analyze the locations of a connected series of crimes to determine the most likely area of offender residence, geographic profiling allows investigators and law enforcement officers to more effectively manage information and focus their investigations. This extensive and exhaustive work explains geographic profiling theories and principles, and includes an extensive review of the literature and research in the areas of criminal profiling, forensic behavioral science, serial violent crime, environmental criminology, and the geography of crime. For investigators and police officers deployed in the field, as well as criminal analysts, Geographic Profiling is a "must have" reference.
