Warning! What you are about to read is true...and not for the faint of heart, as the crime stories collected here detail the most disturbing chapters of Alberta history. Chronicled in these pages are many of the province's most notorious killers and outlaws from the past century: train robbers, a homicidal hired hand, prisoners of war, cannibals, kidnappers, and more. Witness the moment when Peter Pockington has a .357 magnum held to his head. Be there when Wiebo Ludwig "terrorizes" northwestern Alberta...when a Lethbridge city councillor fabricates a story of being stalked, drugged, abducted, and sexually assaulted...when four RCMP offiers are gunned at Mayerthorpe. From back alleys to bedrooms to the gallows, these accounts cover everything from Alberta's largest mass execution to recent headline-making cases. Shocking, appalling...and true.

Fiction-Canada; Crime stories-Canada.
