A well written book. Couldn't put the book down in spite of the fact that I am in the process of moving.
The book is a true story of a serial killer who lived in Hamilton Ontario and immigrated from Punjab, India. Jon Wells has told the story well. I loved his story telling, quite unique and gripping.
I may be biased, but I think Wells has tried to stereotype Punjabis through this book. There is truth in his opinion about many Punjabi people discussed in the book, but there are also assumptions
Excellent and in-depth account of the Suckwhinder Dhillon poisoning case that occurred in the 90s in my hometown Hamilton. Although I lived in the city at the time, I don't recall hearing anything about this case.
Not the best book by him
