Softcover. First pub. in French by Trait d'union. "Well they say 'never say never' and they're right." Karla Homolka wrote in her startling first letter to author Stephen Williams. "Never in a million years did I think I would ever write a letter to someone from the media, let alone you who has condemned me so harshly." Thus began one of the most controversial correspondences in Canadian history. Written in an intriguing novelistic fashion, this book picks Karla up where the author's first book on the case, 'Invisible Darkness', left her, painting her nails in her cell in solitary confinement in the gothic tower of Kingston's Prison for women. After testifying against her ex-husband in the summer of 1995, her life in prison was soon going to take a very different, dramatic turn. This book charts the intimate cosmology of a notorious female prisoner. Part memoir, part woman-in-prison story, part prognostication, part political expose, the author lets Karla and the other key players speak for themselves. And what they have to say will surprise, horrify and enlighten. Illus. in colour. 456pp. lge. 8vo. softcover. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Includes a loosely inserted 2pp. print-out entitled : 'Law: Homolka's release from prison sparks fear.....' F. with no creasing to covers. A fairly heavy book which may require additional postage.
