Helen & Olga - The Psycho-grannies you just didn’t see coming!

The only person who COULD make this unbelievable tale of greed, fraud & murderous seniors sound plausible, is Canada’s own, Keith Morrison. What a delightfully devious, twisted tale.
KUDOS to all !

Compelling subject

Keith Morrison has such great storytelling style! I thoroughly enjoy every story he reports! To think these two little old ladies were such scheming, cold blooded killers…not shocking, perhaps, but certainly unexpected.

Outstanding

Keith Morrison does a fantastic job of relating the intricacies of this outrageous story! I loved every minute. I can hardly believe it’s a true story.
