By A. York on September 8, 2007
Format: Paperback
I picked up the book at the library and thank goodness, I didn't waste my money on this waste of a read. The book was more about the author, Stevie Cameron than about Willie Pickton and the murders at the pig farm. A good reason is because the trial is still on-going and most of the book was written during the pre-trial. The ban on media publication during the pre-trial stage didn't allow Stevie to add anything. What can she possibly write about? She's never met Willie Pickton and although she writes that she feels like she knows him through interviews of others that know him, it certainly didn't come across through her writing.

Much of the book included absolutely useless information (as it pertains to the subject matter). I don't know who Stevie Cameron is, perhaps she has a following for writing about white-collar crimes but based on this book, I would not read anything else written by her. This book was an autobiography of the author and what she went through in writing the book.

This book was truly horrible, a big waste of time and money. Like another reviewer said, there was a pre-trial ban on the information this woman set out to write this book about....so there was nothing of any substance regarding Willie Pickton or the murders. The book was all about author, her travels, her conversations with people and pretty much anything but the Pickton case. So, if you're looking to read about Willie Pickton and the murders he committed, find a different book!

I have read many books dealing with major crime cases. This pitiful excuse for Cameron's existence in the Lower Mainland area during the case's initial evolution is nothing but regurgitating of a fragment of the facts you could have learnt from the newspapers. So, unless you're interested in who did Cameron rub shoulders with, where she bought her coffee and how bad was a leak in her Jeep, do not buy this book. Do not even try to read it. I understand the gag order at the time of her writing but she could have produced at least something that would go deeper into the families' anguish or truly resource the background of all issues at hand. But for that, the author would have to have been involved with the issue a bit earlier than the day after Pickton got arrested. All is a touch-and-go, nothing really well covered. Referencing is miserable, I can't say how many times the phrase "people told me" appears in the book. I don't think Cameron had any specific goal when she put it together. It reads like a diary of an unsuccessful reporter. I am willing to offer my refund money to any food bank or charity. Unfortunately, no one will give me back my whole day I tried to finish this book. Finally, for four wasted digital cameras, I would have expected at least a lot more pictures not just a few grainy pictures of victims and amateurish shots of the farm and Cameron's buddies.

Read 'On The Farm'.. same author, same topic.. Difference is 'On the Farm' was written when sensitive / censored data was no longer considered sensitive.

Gruesome story. A great insight into RCMP / police corruption in Canada.
