Warning: This audiobook contains police and court transcripts and descriptions of graphic sexual violence contained in videotapes made by the perpetrators.
Paul Bernado and Karla Homolka were so perfectly iconic as a newlywed couple that they were dubbed "Ken and Barbie". But their marriage had a dark side involving sex, death, and videotape. The "perfect couple" first raped and murdered Karla's little sister then kidnapped teenage schoolgirls whom they enslaved, raped, tortured, and killed while gleefully recording themselves on video doing it.
Vronsky will take you on the journey from the Scarborough Rapist (Bernardo) to Bordelais (Homolka's current last name) and her return to Canada in October 2014 from the island of Guadeloupe, where she lived for several years.
This is the third audiobook in the Crimes Canada: True Crimes That Shocked the Nation collection.

This is a very interesting book. I have heard of the Homolka killings before, but there was information, especially from the video tapes that was new to me. One negative is that this book is really short, so if you spend a credit on it, it is only about a 2.5 hour listen. I have to say the narrator was wonderful though.
Don Kline's narration sounds stiff and awkward. Some words mispronounced, sentence flow stutters and restarts at times, breaking the flow of the story. His voice is pleasant enough, but sounds like he's struggling at times to read and recite the author's words.
