Synopsis

Forty crimes. Forty crimes of betrayal, greed, and desperation. Forty crimes that shed light on our shared past, and our lives today. Award-winning writer Paul Willcocks takes a sharp, fresh look at legendary crimes and criminals and the way they reflect our history. Murderers and scam artists. Masterminds and bunglers. The infamous and the forgotten. Dead Ends looks at them all. Leo Mantha, the last man hanged in B.C. Wong Foon Sing, the Chinese houseboy kidnapped and tortured by police. Pickton and the Pattison kidnappers. Olson and the McLean Boys. Our crimes define us. Dead Ends shows us how.

Paul Willcocks is a journalist with over 30 years of experience. He has won a Michener Award, been the recipient of a Jack Webster Award for being BC's best columnist, and has been a National Magazine Writing finalist many times.
