Description

Verteran investigative journalist 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 not until February 2002 that pig farmer Robert William Pickton would be 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 could be told.

Covering the case of one of North America's most prolific serial killers 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. Cameron uncovers what was behind law enforcement's refusal to believe that a serial killer was at work.

Great writing, really crazy story

The writing for this book is incredible. However, the narrator tries to do this “Canadian” accent when quoting Robert Picton and it is REALLY bad lol. Almost as if they are reading a nighttime story to a child, you don’t need to make up voices for each character that comes along. Otherwise, very good.

Awful storytelling

Half the book is just victims stories. The story has absolutely no flow at all and reads like a wikipedia page. It's a chore to try and keep track of the information gived. It's also about 12 hours too long just due to the amount of unnecessary information in it. I stopped listening with 11 hours left.

Never ever again

Tragic and shocking story that at least gave the victims back their dignity. Well written with more emphasis on the humanity of the victims than the gore of it all. The narrator was perfect for this book.

Great Audiobook

I couldn't stop listening! I enjoyed that the author talked about the victims with compassion and empathy. Gave the reader (or listener) a real sense of the person(s) they were. The narration was great too! Would recommend!

A great story told terribly.

Informative but not well written, story jumps all over the place and a large portion of the book is about the women which I respect but learning about each womens friends and family members, likes/dislikes is alot of filler and only serves to cause confusion as you are not sure what to keep track of.

zzzz

The book chapter after chapter about the individual victims, not what most listeners are expecting when purchasing a book about a serial killer.

Endless

This book is far too long. It repeats itself countless times. I would recommend reading an article on the Internet before listening to this book. Very disappointing.

Excellent work on Canadian crime

You really feel sad for the women who were lost. The justice system let all but six souls down. Erin Moon is excellent! The book prompted me to research more on the events and learn where the survivors and LEOS are now.

Incredibly boring.

Desperately needs editing.
I had never heard about these crimes and was intrigued to learn more, but this really isn’t the right book for someone interested in the investigation. It’s more of a social commentary about drug addiction and prostitution in Vancouver. Save yourself the credit.

Too Much Detail In the Wrong Places

I'll start by saying that Erin Moon did a great job narrating this book and I would love to listen to her again. The book, however, was a bit boring at times. There was a ton of detail in certain areas where it didn't seem to belong and it was lacking of detail in other places. I've listened to a lot of true crime books, but had never heard anything about this story so I hung in there. Overall though, I would give the book itself 3 stars.
