"The body would have been nearly impossible to identify. There was so little of it left, for one thing. "
Thus begins the sordid tale of the "Scissors Grinder," one of 40 heart-pounding true crime stories that will have you looking over your shoulder. Or keeping your bedside light on at night.
With this and other blood-curdling accounts, veteran crime writer Barb Pacholik offers up another installment in her best-selling series of true crime books set in Saskatchewan. This time she pursues cadaver dogs, unearths charred remains, explores the horrifying "killing room," and delves into cold cases--those unsolved crimes, some whose perpetrators still lurk out there.
Reconstructed from court transcripts, these all-too-true stories expose the greed, desperation, and inhumanity living just down the street and around the corner.
