Join Eve Lazarus for a romp through Vancouver's criminal past as she draws on cases from her latest book Blood, Sweat, and Fear: the story of Inspector Vance, Vancouver's first forensic investigator.

Heralded internationally as the Sherlock Holmes of Canada, during his four-decade long career (1907-1949) Vance was constantly called upon to use his skills in serology, toxicology, firearms, trace evidence and autopsy to solve some of the most sensational murder cases of the 20th century. His skills and analytic abilities were so effective that there were seven attempts on his life, and for a time, he and his family were under constant police guard.

Eve is the author of many titles including: "Cold Case Vancouver: the City's most baffling unsolved murders", "Sensational Vancouver", "Sensational Victoria : bright lights, red lights, murders, ghosts & gardens", "At Home With History : the untold secrets of Greater Vancouver's heritage homes" and more.

Books will be available for purchase ($20), cash only.

We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, which last year invested $153 million to bring the arts to Canadians throughout the country.

Free, but seating is limited. Programs with low enrollment may be cancelled, so please register by phone at: 604-522-3971, or online.
