A Pact with the Devil
With a thriller’s pacing Karla: A Pact with the Devil charts the intimate cosmology of the world’s most notorious female sex slayer. Part memoir, part woman-in-prison story, part prognostication, part political expose, in Karla, Williams lets Karla and the key players speak for themselves. What they have to say is surprising, horrifying and enlightening. Karla: A Pact with the Devil also asks and answers two essential questions: Who is Karla Homolka and how did she come to have a future? Given the fact she is out among us enjoying that future right now makes those answers essential information today. Karla: A Pact with the Devil is, as, one reviewer put it “almost unique in our literature. It is an extraordinary act of the imagination brought to bear on the facts.” (Includes pictures from the original Canadian print edition) Karla: A Pact with the Devil has not been previously available in the United States.
"People want me in max so my life with be hard but it really isn't. There are absolutely no responsibilities here. Everything is provided. We can spend the day sleeping, sun-tanning or doing whatever we want all day every day."
- Karla Homolka in a letter to author Stephen Williams
"Well, they say 'never say never' and they're right," Karla wrote in her startling first letter to Stephen Williams. "Never in a million years did I think I would ever write a letter to someone from the media, let alone you who has condemned me so harshly."
Thus began one of the most controversial correspondences in criminal history.
Karla picks up where Williams' first book on the case, Invisible Darkness, left her, painting her nails in her cell in solitary confinement in the gothic tower of Kingston's Prison for Women. After testifying against her ex-husband in 1995, Karla's life ini prison was soon going to take a very different, dramatic turn.
