This most recent summer reading I recommend was: 

Nate Hendley  - The Boy on the Bicycle: A Forgotten Case of Wrongful Conviction 

On the night of September 15, 1956, seven-year-old Wayne Mallette, was brutally murdered 

on the grounds of the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto. The chief suspect was a "boy 

on a bicycle" seen pedaling away from the CNE.


You can buy it HERE or HERE , or wherever you buy books.

Canadian true crime books this summer.
