Amazon is no longer selling a self-published fictional ebook reportedly written by one of Canada’s most notorious convicted killers, Paul Bernardo.
Release of the work, titled “A Mad World Order,” as an ebook last week triggered an angry reaction, with many customers threatening to boycott Amazon.
The e-commerce giant didn’t reveal whether it removed the book due to pressure.
Bernardo is serving a life sentence for murders two teens, Leslie Mahaffy and Kristen French. Corrections officials say Bernardo has limited access to the internet and e-mail and can’t explain how such a novel could be published.
There’s no confirmation on whether the story in fact is a Bernardo creation, but, several inquries to his lawyer confirmed he was aware his client was writing a book.
