A Canadian Air Force Officer, Colonel Williams and his high-society wife were considered one of Canada s most respected "power couples." But in February, 2010, the nation watched in disbelief as he was arrested and eventually convicted of his crimes. Starting with a string of home invasions, Williams would take women's lingerie and photos, later carefully categorizing them for his home collection. Brilliant at being stealth and obsessive in covering all traces, he was able to deceive his wife, friends, and even his military comrades until he was finally outwitted by a small town police detective, and an FBI trained interrogation specialist (Sutherland), who together worked the investigation that put an end to a string of one of the most disturbing crimes in all of Canadian history.
