The Donnellys Vols. 1 & 2 by John Little

| /


Soon to be known as the definitive work on the infamous Donnelly murders, this two volume set by journalist John Little is meticulously researched, written with the pacing of a thriller, and includes detailed information about the incident that embodies the meaning of Southwestern Ontario Gothic. 

If you don't know the story of the Donnellys, or have never read a book about them, this is the place to start. Little honours the work of Ray Fazakas and Orlo Miller by building on their research, to give us the final word on this dark time in our local history.
