Editorial Reviews


‘A fascinating tale, The Lazier Murder provides an enjoyable, accessible account of an 1883 murder trial in Prince Edward County, Ontario. This valuable book explores a period of transition in the criminal justice system, when older ideas emphasizing localized justice were increasingly seen to be at odds with efforts to create a more professional, rational, and consistent structure. Robert J. Sharpe’s careful, nuanced reconstruction of the case sheds considerable light on late nineteenth-century criminal procedure.’ (Blake Brown, Department of History, Saint Mary’s University)
