Rate this:
Les Holmes was determined to bring closure to Canada's most horrifying serial killer case to date, but shadows still lingered. To his surprise, he found an ex-RCMP member who had fingered Olson weeks before his arrest. Five more teenagers died in the mean-time. RCMP Superintendent Bruce Northorp was in charge of the Olson hunt at the time of the arrest in 1981. He kept quiet both during and after the horrific affair out of respect for the mourning parents. He knew that one day he would have to set the record straight, and in this book he finally speaks out. His full review of the case clearly shows that the RCMP investigation of the Olson affair was plagued by its own internal problems and personalities. Clifford Olson was the most hated man in Canada when he confessed his crimes. Much conjecture surrounded his arrest. The agreement to pay $100,000 for him to reveal the locations of his victims led to tension and mistrust within the RCMP. Now, through his exclusive access to Bruce Northorp, Les Holmes' story uncovers the inner thoughts of one of the RCMP's most respected officers.
