Book Description
Mr. Big is the shocking true story of a murder investigation in Newfoundland and Labrador that changed the face of the Canadian justice system.

On August 4, 2002, three-year-old twin girls Karen and Krista Hart drowned in Gander Lake. They had gone there with their father. He said it was an accident, but the police were convinced Nelson Hart had killed his daughters that day.

With not enough evidence to make an arrest, the RCMP launched a $500,000 "Mr. Big" sting operation to try to get a confession. This book examines the dramatic events that unfolded over the four-month period when Nelson was flying back and forth across the country working in what he believed to be an organized crime syndicate.

Central to this story is Jennifer Hicks, who reveals for the first time her life with her now ex-husband, Nelson Hart, and the events surrounding the deaths of her daughters. Together with television journalist Colleen Lewis, who closely followed Hart's murder trial, Jennifer has reconstructed the tragic story of an abusive relationship and a mother's worst nightmare.

About the Author
Colleen Lewis spent her early years in Rocky Harbour and grew up in Deer Lake. She spent several years as a print reporter, and for the past twelve years she has been a video journalist with NTV.

She followed the story of Karen and Krista Hart since the arrest of their father, Nelson Hart, until the summer of 2014, when he was released.

Jennifer Lisa Hicks was born to Gertrude and Cyril Hicks of Musgrave Harbour, Newfoundland and Labrador, in 1974. She moved to Gander in 1997, where she began post-secondary education in business administration at the Career Academy. While in Gander, she began working at the Albatross Hotel.

In October 1997, Jennifer met and moved in with Nelson Hart, and soon after that she became a full-time mom. Her daughters, Karen and Krista, were born in March 1999. Jennifer's life was turned upside down in 2002 when she lost the two most important people in her life, her precious daughters.

Today Jennifer has a fiancÚ, Myles Gunn. Her life is better now, but it will never be the same without the two daughters she misses dearly.
