Summary "The death of a fifteen-year-old girl caught in the cross-fire of "gang warfare" the day after Christmas in downtown Toronto shook the city to its core. A decade later, What Killed Jane Creba takes us through what led to the shooting, compared to what was said and done afterward, to show something far more nuanced than gang rivalries."-- Provided by publisher
