Hardback. A compelling study of the dynamics of police work and the challenges of apprehending a serial killer. In the summer of 1981, as teenagers in British Columbia's Lower Mainland disappeared (11 in total), members of the RCMP swung into action. When they started discovering the bodies, they began to wonder if this was the work of a single person. By August it was clear that Clifford Robert Olson was the first serial killer in Canadian history. As rare as the serial killer on the social landscape, is a candid police officer willing to review the inner workings of an investigation, warts and all, and disclose the long-term impact it had on those involved. In the Olson case, different circumstances and more sensitive responses to cries of alarm from fellow police and civilians would have saved lives. Illus., appendices, Glossary and Index. 256pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true-crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. in f. dw.
