Episode Summary

You know Beverley McLachlin as the former chief justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, the most dominant and enduring jurist in our modern legal era. An enigmatic figure cloistered for decades by the judicial tradition, Beverley McLachlin, has emerged from her recent retirement with a surprising second act as a crime fiction writer.

Her fast-moving, page-turning legal whodunit, Full Disclosure, was published this spring. I interviewed her before a live audience at the Vancouver Writers Festival in May 2018, and we talked about the book, the law, and growing up in rural Alberta.
