Reviews and comments on
Double Trap

"A True crime story that combines Canadian history with thrilling writing worthy of a popular murder mystery, Double Trap: The Last Public Hanging in Canada is worth a read by any individual fascinated by true crime or our country's hidden history." Brandon Sun, November 6, 2005

"John Melady is a gifted story teller, who has offered an interesting glimpse into his family history, and in doing so, allows the reader to see the complexities of the law, and justice in another time and place, very close to our own surroundings in Ontario."


Joan Sutter, Shelf Life, Spring 2006

"John Melady has turned his family skeleton into an absorbing mix of social history and true-crime thriller."
