Product Details



“Rich with detail. . . . Should you buy this book and read it? Definitely.”
 — Neil Boyd, The Globe and Mail

“Stevie Cameron, who brought the art of political investigative journalism in Canada to new heights over the last three decades, has distinguished herself and her profession once again… [On the Farm] will surely remain a classic for generations of crime readers to come.”
 — Winnipeg Free Press

On the Farm is the book you were hoping for… A hard-hitting look at the botched police investigations of Pickton.”
 — The Vancouver Sun

“No writer knows this story better than Cameron… [On the Farm] will go down as the definitive resource on the Pickton affair.”
 — Maclean’s

“Stevie Cameron has written yet another great book exposing, as is her wont, the ‘comfortable establishment’ in our country of indifference to societal ills that might be expensive nuisances to deal with.”
 — The Tyee
