The chilling true crime account of the botched robbery that would become the most sensational murder case in Canadian history: the Sydney River McDonald's massacre.

It started with a broken conveyor belt. When the mechanical malfunction brought eighteen-year-old McDonald's employee Derek Wood into the restaurant's back room, he saw the safe and got a dangerous idea. It would be so easy to prop the back door open, allowing two friends to sneak inside and steal the money. Wood assumed there was at least $200,000 in the cashbox – an incredible haul for just a few minutes' work – but things would not go according to plan. The robbery went wrong from the start, and within minutes, a fast-food restaurant in the wilds of Nova Scotia was turned into a bloodbath. Wood and his accomplices attacked the employees, killing three instantly and leaving the fourth for dead. In the safe, where they had expected to find a fortune, there was barely $2,000. They fled the scene, instigating a manhunt that would captivate the nation. In the tradition of In Cold Blood and The Onion Field, this stunning work of true crime tells the story of the small-town murder that shocked a nation. Phonse Jessome brings a trained journalist's eye to the case, which remains one of the most horrifying incidents of suburban violence in recent history.
