Colonel Russell Williams
Disturbing to say the least. This is a horribly, abhorrent account of Colonel Russell William's life and the sequence of events involved in the crimes he committed.
When I finished reading this (after my husband had finished and was walking around the house shaking his head over it for a couple days), I felt sick to my stomach. I read alot of murder/mystery books, but the accused in them "make sense" in a senseless way...they had shown signs of becoming a serial killer from a young age. You can credit them with no hope being how they behaved from a young age.
Russell Williams starts in his 40's on his crime spree where two women die at his hands after being brutalized for hours, let alone the few he let live and the homes he broke into to steal undergarments.
What is particularly horrendous about all this is that he was a power figure in Canada, hobknobbing with The Queen, Parliamentary members, local celebrities, as well as the Commander of Canada's most important Airforce Base in Ontario and while he was on his crime spree during his off hours, managed to do his job with self-discipline and professionally. He had it all...money, power, fame and threw it all away for a gruesome fantasy life. To have an influential Canadian soldier commit these atrocities is embarassing for all Canadians to say the least.
This book will have you checking your door and window locks....
