I’m thrilled to reveal that HarperCollins Canada will publish my first true crime book, Dead in the Water. It’s the shocking story of the Rideau Canal honour killings. The book is tentatively scheduled for publication in early 2013. The case against Mohammad Shafia, his wife Tooba and son Hamed, goes to trial October 11 in Kingston, Ontario, and is expected to last three months. The trio are accused of killing four family members, including three teenaged sisters. Virtually all of the key evidence in the case remains hidden from public view because of broad publication bans imposed by the courts. The bans are designed to protect the fair trial rights of the accused. But I can tell you, it’s a fascinating and remarkable story. Stay tuned.
