Allumette Island Massacre and Three Other Canadian Crime Stories
There are four compelling true Canadian crime stories from the past, as reported in daily newspapers by journalists who cleverly and diligently wrote accounts of ghastly crimes for their readership.
The first occurred in the 1930s in Western Quebec. It is a true story of a man who shot to death five members of his own family. The investigation, trials and hanging were the most followed crime news of the 1930s. The incidents, places and characters are real.
Readers will be mesmerized by the investigators' efforts to solve the case to satisfy a jury to convict, and the real courtroom drama that took place to reach justice.
The second took place in Ontario. Two young men paid a high price for brazenly trying to beat the establishment. The story portrays their personalities and characters for the reader to try to understand what motivated them to act.
The third story takes place in Saskatchewan, is about a man who chose a destructive lifestyle, resulting in two followers joining him in a robbery and then ruthless murder.
The final story, in Alberta, is about a young man who strayed at a young age into a criminal life and finally murder. The story tells of his escape and subsequent capture.
Characters' names were changed in the last three stories.
