5.0 out of 5 stars
Gripping read that happens to be historical.

A great read.
Has all the local colour details and specifics to take the reader to the time and place that I expect to see in a local history, but when I opened the box and got a few chapters in, I found a well-written, gripping 'novel' that really happened.
Absolutely great first book from Joe Ralko. Well researched & written.
Fascinating account of a crime mystery set in western Ontario, Canada.

A fast-paced read about the first suicide bomber in Canada, a mystery from 1973 which remains unsolved. The author, who was actually present at the event, spent years researching the details behind this puzzling mystery man who decided seemingly for no known reason to rob a bank in a smallish town in northwestern Ontario. The book gathers a multitude of data to present a clear picture of what occurred, but we still don't know the actual identity of the bomber or why he did what he did. Well worth the read.
