About Shadow of Doubt

9780864929211On July 6, 2011, Richard Oland, scion of the Moosehead brewing family, was murdered in his office. The brutal killing stunned the city of Saint John, and news of the crime reverberated across the country. In a shocking turn and after a two-and-a-half-year police investigation, Oland’s only son, Dennis, was arrested for second-degree murder.

CBC reporter Bobbi-Jean MacKinnon covered the Oland case from the start. In Shadow of Doubt, MacKinnon guides readers through the twists and turns of the story, from the discovery of the murder through the police investigation to the events of the trial — as only someone who was present from the beginning could. Chronicling the evidence, including evidence never presented to the jury, she builds the cases for the defence and the prosecution, leaving the verdict in the hands of the reader.
