LETHAL MARRIAGE:

The Unspeakable Crimes of Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka

In the annals of vicious sexual sadists and serial killers, Paul Bernardo and his stunning young wife Karla Homolka are unique.

Paul Bernardo, a graduate of the University of Toronto, was an apprentice accountant, and an undiscovered brutal serial rapist when he met 17-year-old Karla Homolka.

To keep her man happy, Karla participated in outrageous sexual exploits, many of them videotaped, which led to the heinous murders of two schoolgirls.

Was Karla the battered wife, terrorized by her husband, or a co-conspirator?

In an unflinching narrative which makes use of the couple's videotaped record, Nick Pron, a master of true crime, relentlessly unfolds the background, marriage, and crimes of the golden small-town Canadian couple.
