Cold Case Vancouver delves into fifty years of some of Vancouver's most baffling unsolved murders. In 1953, two little boys were found murdered in the city's storied Stanley Park, and who remain unidentified to this day. In 1975, a country singer was murdered just as she was on the verge of an amazing career. And in 1994, Nick Masee, a retired banker with connections to the renegade Vancouver Stock Exchange, disappeared along with his wife Lisa, their bodies never found. Cold Case Vancouver is an intriguing whodunit for true-crime aficionados and armchair detectives.

Eve Lazarus's previous books include Sensational Vancouver.

"Cold Case Vancouver" is not the riveting read I'd hoped for; as the author points out in the introduction, there is something unsatisfying about a book of unsolved crimes, as there is no payoff at the end for the reader.

With the exception of the 'Babes in the Woods' case, none of the deaths have a real sense of mystery about them; they are mostly of the 'wrong place at the wrong time' variety, and not especially interesting.

After a while, the cases all seem to blend into the others --and while they're all sad, they're only mildly interesting.
