A definitive compendium of Canadaâ€™s mass murderers and spree killers.
Rampage: a state of anger or agitation resulting in violent, reckless, and destructive behaviour. In 1989, Marc LĂ©pine mercilessly executed 14 female students at Montrealâ€™s Ă‰cole Polytechnique to become Canadaâ€™s most notorious mass murderer. The following year spree killer Peter John Peters roamed from London, Ontario, to Thunder Bay, leaving a trail of bloodied bodies, broken dreams, and stolen vehicles. Both men experienced the same devastating destiny â€“ they embarked on homicidal rampages that shook their nation to the core.
Lee Mellor has gathered more than 25 of Canadaâ€™s most lethal mass and spree killers into a single work. Rampage details their grisly crimes, delves into their twisted psyches, and dissects their motivations to answer the question every true crime lover yearns to know: why? If you think serial killers are dangerous, prepare for something deadlier â€¦
