Présentation de l'éditeur

Perfect for fans of Making a Murderer and The People v. O. J. Simpson, Invisible Darkness is the story of one of the more bizarre cases in recent memory—killings so sensational that they prompted the Canadian government, in the interests of justice, to silence its national press and to lock foreign journalists out of the courts.

To all appearances, Paul and Karla Bernardo had a fairytale marriage: beautiful working-class girl weds bright upper-middle-class guy and they buy a fashionable dream house in the suburbs. But, bored with his straight, prestigious accounting job, Paul soon went freelance as an international smuggler. He also revealed his boredom with conventional sex—enough so that, one Christmas Eve, he persuaded his wife to drug her own sister and engage in a menage a trois, during which the sister died (a bungling coroner ruled her death accidental). The couple then upped the ante, kidnapping and imprisoning several high school girls for sexual marathons, which they videotaped before savagely murdering their captives. When the girls’ bodies were found, the police were stymied (although Paul had been accused of rape and given a DNA test that vanished for two years and only recently was linked to some fifty sexual-assault cases) until Karla tried to have her husband arrested for wife beating. During questioning, she confessed to the crimes and is now serving two concurrent twelve-year sentences for manslaughter in exchange for testifying against her husband, who was jailed for life.

Biographie de l'auteur

Stephen Williams is a Canadian investigative journalist and writer. His reputation was solidified by the continuing success of two books, Invisible Darkness: The Strange Case of Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka and Karla: A Pact with the Devil. Williams has been twice arrested for his writing, once in 1998 and again in 2003, criminally charged with more than one hundred counts of disobeying court orders and publication bans, twice put on trial over the eight-year period between 1998 and 2005, and twice exonerated. Williams has received the Hellman-Hammett Award from the Human Rights Watch, an award presented annually to journalists who have been prosecuted by totalitarian regimes such as China and Iran.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Heavy on the details 25 octobre 2016
Par Jenny Edwards - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Just finished this book on Kindle and wish I'd bought "Deadly Innocence" by Scott Burnside and Alan Cairns instead. Reading Williams' book was like being handed a huge pile of crime files - statements, videos, names, scraps of paper, and being asked to sort through them myself. I appreciated the detail, but sometimes it really bogged down the flow of what was happening. Williams also tended to make distracting personal observations like "she was a little heavy in the thighs". It might have been helpful to have a list of who's who at the beginning of the book. It's great that everyone's name got mentioned, but by the time I read a list of ten or so people associated with the prosecution or the defense or Karla's inner circle, I found myself having to flip backwards to see, Now Who is this person, and Why are they important to the story. Perhaps Williams was trying to do what he described Steve Irwin as believing: "As an investigator, he saw himself as a miner for details; details in people's memories that had to be excavated in person, at the source." Unfortunately, Williams mined a pile of rubble, and then left it to the reader to find the nugget of gold.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 deeply disturbing although with some unanswered questions 4 juillet 2014
Par David Ash - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Being originally from Southern Ontario, although having left before most of the events described in this book, I was quite horrified by this whole story. I won't describe the story itself in any detail as I believe it to be very public knowledge--the author does a very good job of relating what happened. The rapes--although not two of the murders--are described in very graphic detail that many readers will find traumatic to read. It is horrifying how matter-of-fact the act of rape became for this couple. For example, at one point Karla and Paul are entertaining people they called "friends" in their home. At first it seems like this might offer the reader a brief respite from the continual onslaught of horrible crimes. But the respite is brief: the very next paragraph, Paul is in the bathroom raping one of his female houseguests.

Williams does a good job of describing the rapes, the criminal investigation, and the trials in considerable detail--although, as noted, the details are shocking, for those who want to know more about the case, there is a great deal of information here.

Despite the detail, however, there are significant questions left unanswered. Despite the graphic detail on the rapes, the deaths of two of the girls happen offstage. Thus the important question of who was more responsible for those deaths--Karla or Paul--is something that we can only guess at. I had hoped to learn more about this, as it is an important question given the plea bargain that allowed Karla to go free after a relatively brief sentence, whereas Paul is locked up presumably for life. I was also left with some unanswered questions about the plea bargain itself. The way it was generally described in the media doesn't seem to be the full story but the exact motivation for the plea bargain remains a bit unclear.

I understand that Williams' other book on this subject gives more detail on the plea bargain itself, and I look forward to reading that book as well--to the extent that one can "look forward" to any kind of reading of this sort of subject matter.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great read about 2 evil serial sex killers 6 mars 2015
Par rkrystofolski - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
Wonderful Book about the serial killing team of Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka. They both sexually assaulted, raped, sodomized and murdered three teenage girls, Tammy Lyn Homolka (Karla decided to give her 15 year old sister's virginity to Paul as a Christmas gift, by drugging her and sexually assaulting her while Paul raped her but she died probably from mixing alcohol and veterinary anesthetic), Leslie Erin Mahaffy (Paul kidnapped her after finding her locked out of her house after coming home after curfew, they kept her for 3 days with both Karla and Paul sexually assaulting her but had to strangle her because Karla's parents were expected for a Father's day dinner. After they dismembered her body, encased it in cement and dumped it at Lake Gibson) and Kristen Dawn French (Paul and Karla kidnapped her from a church parking lot, kept her as long as they could, continually violating her and then strangled her and dumped her in a ditch). The most sickening aspect is that she's free.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Truly Disturbing....The victims will haunt you 26 août 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
I have read many, many books on true crime and this one of the MOST disturbing, perplexing cases I have heard of. This story brought tears to my eyes especially in the chapters that focus (in full graphic detail)on the rapes and torture of these young girls.If they were still alive today these girls would be about a year or 2 younger then me and I can't help but think of my younger self in the early 1990's. My heart was literally breaking for these families, at many points I had to put the book down because I felt it was revealing too much....but tragically it is all to true... Even after finishing this book I am still thinking about these 3 beautiful lives that were ended by the pure evil of others.I cannot imagine the jury and prosecuters having to watch these tapes.I feel Stephen Williams does an excellent job in portraying Karla AND Paul as equally responsible in their crimes..I mean HOW much can someone make YOU do???? To rape your sister? Molest and rape 2 girls? To help dismember a body?...yes Karla may have been abused but does that excuse her in abusing others????I felt that some other books on the case were more sympathetic to Karla yet Williams stays more factual and allows us to see the whole scope of this horrific crime...I do have to warn: NOT for the faint of heart...it is compelling and emotional

About two psychopaths who should be incarcerated side by side for the rest of their miserable lives. They probably would be but one was smart enough to play the Canadian Justice System.
