Paul Bernardo publishes violent e-book on Amazon: report

Serial killer Paul Bernardo has self-published a violence-filled e-book on Amazon from prison, according to a Global News report.

Descriptions of A MAD World Order posted on Amazon describe itas a 631-page fictional thriller featuring references to the Illuminati and multiple violent characters, including Mexican drug cartel members and Russian militants.

CBC News has attempted to contact Amazon as well as Bernardo's lawyer, Tony Bryant, for comment, but neither immediately responded.

But Bryant told Global News in an email: "I am advised that Mr. Bernardo has written a book."

Bernardo, now 50, was sentenced in 1995 to life with no chance of parole for 25 years for raping and killing 14-year-old Leslie Mahaffy and 15-year-old Kristen French in St. Catharines, Ont. — crimes he committed with his then wife, Karla Homolka.

He was also designated a dangerous offender after admitting to raping 14 women in the Toronto suburb of Scarborough.

The book doesn't appear to discuss the author's own crimes.

Most of the customer reviews of the book posted so far take aim at the bookseller, calling Amazon "despicable" for selling a book written by a "monster."

"Shame on you Amazon," read one comment.

Anyone can publish a book on Amazon's platform and earns royalties off each sale.

The book is available as a download for $7.77.
