Very good book . I remember hearing about this when I was younger and again as an adult. Thought it was so sad that such a young man would be convicted of such a horrible crime. This book sets straight the facts of the injustice that was thrust upon Steven Truscott , his family and friends that KNEW him to be INNOCENT. Sad story as well as being triumphant and glad I read it to understand more of what really took place.

Real Justice provides an interesting glimpse into the Canadian legal system during the late 1950s. It’s also a shocking example of what can go wrong when people with power make poor decisions, decisions that will cost a young man his freedom.
