Murder: Twelve True Stories of Homicide in Canada

Murder: Twelve True Stories of Homicide in Canada
Edward Butts

Guelph author Edward Butts returns to the field of Canadian true crime with this collection of a dozen stories culled from historical headlines. Beginning and ending on Toronto’s Islands (from the killing of Gibraltar Point’s lighthouse keeper in 1815 to WW2-era “Silk Stocking” killer Bill Newell), the rest of the book goes from coast to coast to coast discussing some of the more sensational and mysterious crimes of yesteryear, including a Guelph case of multiple murder from the 1880s. A good anthology for crime history buffs, and one likely to inspire further reading.
