Review: Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka: The Horrific True Story Behind Canada's Ken and Barbie Killers by Ryan Becker and Nancy Veysey

An account of the crimes of Karla Homolka and Paul Bernardo - the so called Ken and Barbie Killers.  Paul Bernardo was already active as the Scarborough Rapist before he met and married Homolka.    Apparently when the two met, it was a match made in Hell.  Though she claimed to be a victim in court to get what is arguably one of the most sweet plea deals ever, it is evident from the video tapes they made, that she was actively involved in raping, torturing and encouraging Bernardo in his crimes.  As to who committed the murders, both claim the other did - not that it should matter - they both committed horrific crimes - even raping and murdering Karla's younger sister - her virginity being Karla's GIFT to Bernardo.  It is repulsive.  Anyway, this book is very informative and covers more current info than other books on the subject I have read
