    One thought on “Camouflaged Killer: The Shocking Double Life of Canadian Air Force Colonel Russell Williams”

    1. This was very creepy. My mom briefly met this guy once apparently when she volunteered as a board member at the Military Family Resource Center in Gagetown, which made this true crime novel all the more disturbing for me, yet it captures the military environment of Canada and the horror that surfaced as if it were happening all over again.

    2. This was, for whatever reason, the most emotionally taxing true crime book I've ever read. Thanks to a lifelong interest in the macabre I'm quite desensitized and have a very high tolerance for gruesome details and content, but this book challenged me on that front; there were a couple of times I actually had to stop reading for a moment in order to adequately process what I had just read. I'm not sure if it was because the author was heavily referencing the video transcripts of Williams' crimes [...]

    3. Very terrifying book! However, this is a good reminder that one never really truly knows an acquaintance or co-worker.

    4. Meh. I can see why this book has been optioned for a film. This book was more comprehensive than the other book on Williams (A New Kind of Monster, Appleby), I'll give it that much. It also seems to have benefitted from the time that has passed since the hearing, as the other book felt a bit unfinished in comparison. It was a little heavy on the "storytelling" for me, however. At one point, the author fantasizes about what the victims were thinking the night they were murdered, which made me wan [...]

    5. I enjoy true crime and have read a lot of it. This was the first time that I had to skip pages because I couldn't read anymore of the crime being committed. There is video of this crime and the victim's cries for help were a little too much to read about. Overall the book was interesting. I was living in Canada when this was discovered.

    6. I chose to read Gibb's version of the horrible and tragic events surrounding Williams and his heinous crimes mostly because of the local connection; I figured an investigative reporter who actually lived in the area where the crimes took place may be able to present the case in a unique light. I was not disappointed.

    7. I thought the writing was okay - a bit graphic and hard to read in places. But the story is so fascinating, that I found the book quite interesting overall. Mostly I wanted to know how a person who seemed so trustworthy could have such a depraved other side to them. That's something I still can't understand, but reading the book provided some interesting insights.

    8. This book was an eye opener to the fact that anyone can lead a shocking double life. As a decorated member of the Military it never occured to me that someone could be so sick and twisted as this former Colonel was.

    9. Creepy good, scary to know that various branches of the military in different countries have NO IDEA what backgrounds really define their military membersAD I HAVE NEVER MET ANYONE LIKE THIS!!!!

    10. A very interesting and enlightening read. Very well written. Still some unanswered questions but don't think it's through any fault of the author.

    11. It has horrific details to read through, but that comes in part with reading a true crime. The author is a great writer and keeps the story moving.

    12. Probably one of the most detailed true crime books I've ever read. Very graphic descriptions of the crimes.

    13. Well written but way too much informationI liked A New Kind of Monster better. It followed the life of Russel Williams without the intimate details which I would have rather not have read.

    14. True murder story, well written but too much analysis at the end. Lots of questions still not answered regarding the military's side and the wife's involvement.
