From Police Corruption and Brothels to Forensics and Murder: A Crime Romp Through our Torrid Past

Guest Speaker: Eve Lazarus, Vancouver-based author, communications consultant, speaker, and storyteller.

Vancouver and Victoria may have postcard perfect images, but once you dig beneath the surface you find police corruption, brothels, ground breaking forensics, and murder. Eve has written six non-fiction books that are part history, part true crime, based on archival materials such as Inquests, police reports, trial transcripts, death certificates, newspaper reports, as well as hundreds of interviews with family, friends, police investigators and other experts. Join Eve on a tour of the dark side in an illustrated presentation featuring stories from her books Sensational Victoria: Bright Lights, Red Lights, Murders, Ghosts and Gardens; Cold Case Vancouver: The City’s Most Baffling Unsolved Murders; Blood, Sweat, and Fear: the story of Inspector Vance; and her latest book, Murder by Milkshake: An Astonishing True Story of Adultery, Arsenic and a Charismatic killer—a #1 BC bestseller.
