Runaway Devil

Runaway Devil

Runaway Devil-final

Runaway Devil, written by myself and Calgary Herald crime writer Sherri Zickefoose, tells the story of Canada’s youngest multiple killer, a 12-year-old girl who murdered her family by enlisting the help of her 23-year-old accomplice and lover, Jeremy Allan Steinke, who claimed to be a 300-year-old werewolf and boasted to an undercover cop that he drank blood.

Stabbed to death in the night were not just her mother and father, but also her eight-year-old brother. In the killers’ warped sense of benevolence, they felt it would be best to send the boy to be with his parents in “the summerland.”

The book explores the killers’ upbringing and background, their fascination with death metal music, violent movies and the goth subculture. A portion of the proceeds are donated to the victim assistance unit of the Medicine Hat Police Service and to Rockhaven, a men’s recovery centre in Sudbury, Ont.

    This was one of the best and most well written books I have read in a very long time, it is not only informatitive but is nonjudgemental.
