This volume recalls the horrific and astonishing true story of the double life of Russell Williams, who was at once a respected figure in the Canadian military and a ruthless, sado-sexual serial criminal and murderer. A model officer and elite pilot, he was trusted with flying international dignitaries including Queen Elizabeth, as well as commanding Canada's most important military airbase. Yet his dark and violent secret life included breaking into 82 homes of girls and women; thefts of vast amounts of lingerie (which he dressed in); two bizarre sexual assaults that left an uncomprehending Ontario village on a knife's-edge; and eventually, two rape-murders. When police raided Williams's home -- a home he shared with his wife, a respected professional in her own right who was apparently completely unaware of her husband's unconscionable double life -- they found hundreds of pairs of women's underwear, meticulously organized and cataloged. In this book, the author chronicles a true story that offers fascinating -- and troubling -- insights on human psychopathology.
