Podcast Interview About Wrongful Convictions

OCTOBER 2/2019 – The Twisted Podcast has released a new episode about my book, The Boy on the Bicycle: A Forgotten Case of Wrongful Conviction in Toronto

My book examines the story of Ron Moffatt, who was wrongly convicted of murder at age 14 in Toronto in 1956, based largely on a false confession he made under duress.

The episode features an interview with me, comments from Ron and insights on the phenomenon of false confessions (which happen much more frequently than you might think). Podcast host John Taylor discusses how aggressive police interrogation methods such as the controversial Reid Technique can induce suspects to confess to crimes they didn’t actually commit.

The Boy on the Bicycle can be purchased through AmazonChapters-Indigo and the website of publisher, Five Rivers.

Copies are also available at Indigo Yonge – Eglinton (2300 Yonge Street, Toronto) and Indigo Bay – Bloor (Manulife Centre, Toronto), among other locales.
