As I was reading the book I had one of those "wait a minute" moments that made me Google the Massey Mansion to see if I was correct. I was! The Massey Mansion is now The Keg Mansion in Toronto and I have enjoyed dinner there. I thought that was pretty cool! No wonder the restaurant is rumored to be haunted.
I was off to my local library again when I heard that Charlotte Gray and Edward Greenspan, one of Canada's best known criminal defense attorney's, were going to be there discussing The Massey Murder not only as a book but the case itself. Mr. Greenspan discussed how he would have defended Carrie Davies. It was a riveting discussion and I was surprised at how much humour Mr. Greenspan displayed. At the risk of being accused of stereotyping I wasn't expecting it. Sadly, not long after the event Mr. Greenspan passed away, so I was even more pleased to have been able to hear him speak.
Ms. Gray's book The Massey Murder was chosen as the Waterloo Region One Book - One Community read for 2014.
