    yes, it's disgusting... that's why i think if those things were true, it'd be in those books. like i said, i never read about any of what you question.

    jane, i just wanted to clarify something for you... the first printing of karla: apwtd included one pic of leslie's body in cement... due to outrage and out of respect for her family, the book was never printed again with that picture.

    the original printing looks like this:
    http://www.amazon.ca/Karla-Pact-Devi.../dp/2895940002

    subsequent printings look like this:
    http://www.amazon.ca/Karla-Pact-Devi...6152301&sr=1-2


    it's also possible you are referring to the book "a marriage made for murder" (which i have not read) that was only temporarily banned in canada b/c it came out before the publication ban/trial of bernardo ended.

    http://www.amazon.com/Marriage-Made-...6151796&sr=8-1


    to quote a reviewer:

    This book isn't "banned in Canada" per se. It, along with other books and newstories, were subjected to a temporary publication ban before and during the defendant's trial, because there is a general idea in Canada that big media frenzies reduce said defendant's "right to a fair trial"; too much lurid press on a country-wide level make finding impartial, untainted jurors much more difficult.

    Once Bernardo's trial was over, this and all kinds of other tell-all stuff (however accurate or inaccurate) became widely available.

    snipped from the first link

    So this is the book with the photo in ? but its full of typos ? but then it says it on the other book too ? )of the same name

    Much has been made in the press and throughout the Canadian publishing industry about the use of sensational photographs and a cruelly ironic cover to sell this book. I say sell it however you can within the boundaries of the law, and push at those boundaries wherever possible. This is an important story; people should read it. On the other hand, Cantos has done its book and its readers a disservice by allowing lax editing and proofreading to disfigure Karla: A Pact With the Devil. The book shows unmistakable stylistic signs of a rush to publication and has, by far, the greatest number of typos I have ever seen in a professionally published work.

    not real sure what you are asking... but yes the book "karla" first printing (march 2003) is the one with "the pic"... it is as well full of typos... spelling, grammar... editing mistakes... but it's a good read about the case regardless. he's the man who saw?/heard the tapes.

    gotta go to bed... goodnight! : )

    How great to be a Canadian citizen, be able to violently & horrifically murder a couple of young women, yet get to give birth a few years later AND KEEP the baby. Karla is a true embarrasment to Canadian Law. It's disgusting.
    Karla is an embarrassment to Humankind not just Canadians

    AMEN!!

    I will never believe this animal is walking the streets. I have read much about her too but never heard about the fingernail and hair events. She is a violent murderer.

    Only my opinion, no one else need agree.

    I've seen it at Blockbuster, but it's always rented out. They only have one copy.

    hi WR ... no i haven't. after reading all those books -and i just inquired about another @ the library: "deadly innocence"... they are getting it for me from a nearby county- i don't think it's necessary. i believe i read waay more then a movie could ever portray... plus, PB and KH both look so evil naturally, i don't think any actor would do them justice. if you see it, let me know what you think though...

    I read that book that was banned for a bit and is super expensive (sorry - I don't recall the title and don't know where the book is now - might have given it to a friend). Anyway - those details (hair and nails) were not in that book.
    I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!
