Editorial Reviews

The Calgary Herald - Rick Mofina
True-crime aficionados will appreciate Edmonton writer Barbara Smith's addition to the genre. As a chronicling of some of the darker episodes of Alberta history - and there are many - it is a gem...[Smith's] writing is clear and, for the most part, her narrative flows beyond interesting and into engrossing waters. Deadly Encounters is a fine effort.
Books in Canada - George Kaufman
[Deadly Encounters] takes us behind the headlines and shows us the real people involved in the tragedies that crop up in our daily news. All the stories are well documented and told in a straightforward, accessible style.
