Slight wear to book, some wear to of DJ spine, light yellowing of pages. ; A bright, solid book. Dust jacket in Mylar jacket protector, unclipped. ; B&W Photographs; 9.10 X 6.10 X 2 inches; 726 pages; This case brought shame to the Vancouver Police Department for ignoring the disappearances of street walkers for years but it also brought fame to one Vancouver policeman, Kim Rossmo, who developed 'Geographic profiling' "Covering the case of one of North America's most prolific serial killer gave Stevie Cameron access not only to the story as it unfolded over many years in two British Columbia courthouses, but also to information unknown to the police - and not in the transcripts of their interviews with Pickton - such as from Pickton's long-time best friend, Lisa Yelds, and from several women who survived terrifying encounters with him. You will now learn what was behind law enforcement's refusal to believe that a serial killer was at work.Stevie Cameron first began following the story of missing women in 1998, when the odd newspaper piece appeared chronicling the disappearances of drug-addicted sex trade workers from Vancouver's notorious Downtown Eastside. It was February 2002 before Robert William Pickton was arrested, and 2008 before he was found guilty, on six counts of second-degree murder. These counts were appealed and in 2010, the Supreme Court of Canada rendered its conclusion. The guilty verdict was upheld, and finally this unprecedented tale of true crime can be told." Pickton was only convicted of the murder of 6 women but hinted at 49, expressing regret that he didn't make it to 50 before he was arrested.

5 Holmes, W. Leslie & Bruce Northorp Where Shadows Linger The Untold Story of the RCMP's Olson Murders Investigation
Surrey, BC Heritage House Publishing 2000 1895811929 / 9781895811926 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
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."
