    1. First the bad - there are several typos, the footnotes are, big and large, simply a website link. While this makes sense for an ebook, I still want correct citation format, sorry. Lastly, you could say that a few of the sections about serial killers are de facto ads for other books in the series. They are and they are not in my view. McCarthy does a good job of showing how those cases are related to the scope of the story, so considering the series, I'm neutral on these inclusions. Finally, and [...]

    2. Sad but informative! In Volume 15 of the Crimes Canada series, Author Katherine McCarthy gives us a look at a subject that's not talked about often enough! As she put it,"Canada's dirty little secret"! She is talking about Indigenous women and girls of Canada. The book is well written and defiantly well researched!! These women and girls suffer not only in poverty, but violence that nobody ( at least not enough) seem to care about. The end result for too many is that they disappear and end up mu [...]

    3. This is a very well-researched, well-written and thought-provoking book by Katherine McCarthy about the missing and murdered Indigenous women of Canada. The book also mentions 5 serial killers who focused on Indigenous women knowing that there would not be extensive investigations into their cases. This is a story that needed to be told and Author McCarthy does an excellent job telling it. I highly recommend this book.

    4. GREAT READ ON A HORRIBLE PROBLEMAuthor has done his research, put together numerous murders inCanada PROVIDED the reader with all the information, to make thisa very interesting readRead the book then make your own decisionsabout these crimes in Canada.

    5. This was mostly interesting. The book is a pretty short but still, somehow seems stretched. There are some poorly written chapters. There are also several advertisements for other books in this series.

    6. A well researched book on the indigenous people and the cruelty they were subjected to. Everyone should read this. The only problem I had with the book was advertisement of other books in the series.

    7. This is a well-researched and well written book about true crimes. It was eye opening for me because I was not familiar with the history of Canada and the way in which indigenous people have been treated in that country over the years. Katherine McCarthy's account of the missing and murdered women's cases and the way the authorities often turned a blind eye to what was going on, is quite shocking and definitely makes you think. In this book, the author has highlighted specific cases and document [...]

    8. I was very happy to see a book focusing on a topic that is dear to my heart. Having studied and written on it in the past, I had huge expectations.The book had great potential but fell short, especially when it comes to the writing. There were many formatting problems, as well as typos and grammatical errors. The chapters on the serial killers seem to have been written in haste. The section on root causes was interesting but way too short. Considering how ignorant most Canadians are about what t [...]

    9. InformativeA good read and is also very informative. I didn't know about most of the cases . I'd certainly read this author again

    10. An excellent portrayal of the plight of Indigenous people in CanadaInvisible Victims deals with issues of major importance. This is information that very few people have heard about. And that is that disproportionate numbers of Indigenous women are missing and/or murdered and no effort is being made to effect a change in this trend.Ms. McCarty has thoroughly researched this matter and shared the results. The government has allowed the murders of Indigenous women to not be properly investigated a [...]
