Death is always under all circumstances a tragedy, for if
It is not, then it means that life has become one
-Theodore Rooseuelt, March 12, 1900.
When informed of the topic of my second editing project
with Dr. Sohail, I had to shut off the horror that was
flooding the creative side of my mind and let myself rely
strictly on logic.
I sat listening, almost without comment or
question, to my learned colleague until he finished explaining
why he had written such a horrific documentary.
Upon discovery of a court's verdict while
watching Tv; and by what may appear to be instinct alone, he
had rushed half-way around the world to interview the man
alleged to have abused and murdered one hundred children, who
claimed to be seeking revenge for the death of his mother!
Throughout Sohail's commentary the nagging
question continued, "Was I ready to accept the responsibility
of helping to develop and publish such a revelation?"
After serious contemplation over the next
few days, Il<new that it was a story needing to be told. But
if it had not been for the close association with the Crime
Writers of Canada, I would have had a much more difficult time
with the topic.
What is especially intriguing about this
work is the wondering if the accused committed the horrible
crimes or not. Like all our books we would be interested in
