A quality coffee table style publication in full colour, involving New Brunswick Law courts, Judges, prosecutors, witnesses, defence teams, evidence in ‘red bags’, all drawn from an artist’s perspective. The good guys, the ‘bad’ guys, the top dozen or more stories over the last three decades from the New Brunswick courts. However, many of these trials gained prominence within Canada or were of significant national significance in the criminal justice system. Included are both trials of Alan Légère, the Winters and Romeo murder trials, child molestation and child neglect, Premier Hatfield’s “marijuana case”, a Columbian drug smuggling cartel, the Bourque RCMP murders in Moncton, and the Oland trials plus the Irving Empire in court – twice! All this and more wrapped up in one tidy package, with full colour sketches of courts and participants, plus well constructed verse explaining each of those trials. Artist Carol Taylor has been sketching in the courts for over thirty years, and her documentation covering a wide variety of cases, it is both factual and entertaining. Greg Marquis, author and professor of Criminal Justice and Canadian history at UNB, wrote the main trial narratives with a Preface by Connell Smith; Epilogue by Roslyn Rosenfeld.
