Karla: A Pact with the Devil
"People want me in max so my life will be hard but it really isn't. There are absolutely no responsibilities here. Everything is provided. We can spend the day sleeping, sun-tanning or doing whatever we want all day every day."
--Karla Homolka in a letter to author Stephen Williams
"Well, they say 'Never say never' and they're right," Karla wrote in her startling first letter to Stephen Williams. "Never in a million years did I think I would ever write a letter to someone from the media, let alone you who has condemned me so harshly." Thus began one of the most controversial correspondences in Canadian history.
Karlapicks up where Williams's first book on the case,Invisible Darkness, left her, painting her nails in her cell in solitary confinement in the gothic tower of Kingston's Prison for Women. After testifying against her ex-husband in 1995, Karla's life in prison was soon going to take a very different, dramatic turn.
With a thriller's pace,Karla: A Pact with the Devilcharts the inner life of the world's most notorious female prisoner. InKarla, Williams lets Karla and the other key players speak for themselves. And what they have to say will surprise, horrify and enlighten.
