Only slight wear ; A bright, solid book, dustjacket in Mylar, unclipped. Stated First Edition ; B&W Photographs; 8.60 X 5.70 X 0.70 inches; 256 pages; "Darryll Kettles and Les Forsythe fingered Clifford Olson as a murderer the first time they interviewed him in their respective RCMP detachments. Within a couple of months, and after seven more children were killed, other Mounties involved in the case were also convinced of Olson's guilt. But they needed proof. Under interrogation after he was arrested and charged with one murder, Olson offered a deal: money for the bodies of the ten other young people he had abducted and murdered in British Columbia's Lower Mainland. To his shock, both the RCMP and two levels of government agreed to his terms. The unprecedented $100,000 deal generated headlines across North America, but also led to Olson's guilty plea and admission of multiple slayings. His later claims that he had killed people in Hawaii, Seattle, across Canada, and even in Ireland have continued to distort the true story for two decades."
