MURDER HE WROTE

If the crown and the cops have their way, the author of two sensational books on the Bernardo-Homolka murders will go to jail for a long time. Is Stephen Williams - a man accused of disobeying court orders and violating publication bans - a marytr for free speech or a heartless self-promoter?
