Overview

Peter Whitmore could be the poster boy for Canada’s revolving door justice system. The notorious pedophile had already established a horrendous criminal record before he shocked the nation with a sadistic con job in 2006 that saw him kidnap two young Prairie boys from their unsuspecting families. The case sparked a desperate manhunt and a flood of anger as citizens were left wondering why such a dangerous predator wasn't locked up. Crime journalist Mike McIntyre takes readers inside Whitmore's crimes, into the lives of his many victims and reveals how a lax legal system ignored repeated warning signs that another violent attack was imminent. McIntyre’s latest true crime tale represents a wake-up call to justice officials and a chilling reminder to Canadians about the devils who live among us.
