A true behind the headlines look at a crime that shocked Western Manitoba and the rest of the country. It was facinating to read about the build up to the killing and the resulting aftermath. I have heard Mike McIntyre speak and he is a well respected crime journalist.

The background on the criminals is very detailed. Their long history and the trail of events leading up to that fateful event.

This was quite an interesting read. I remember this happening in my province but I never knew the details. Such a sad story about brave man. R.I.P. Dennis Strongquill.

I read Mike McIntyre's "To The Grave" and much preferred that book. However this is definitely a great, quick read.
