Transatlantic is excited to announce that the Gripping Four-Part Crave Original True Crime Series, BILLIONAIRE MURDERS, based on the compulsively readable tale, of the same name, by Kevin Donovan is now available to watch!

Produced in partnership with Entertainment One (eOne), and leading investigative journalist, Kevin Donovan, the series explores the unsolved murders of Canadian power couple, Barry and Honey Sherman. 

BILLIONAIRE MURDERS features illuminating interviews and compelling details in the case and from the crime scene, as well as access to key figures connected to the couple, and information from confidential sources with insight crucial to the unsolved murder mystery.

Kevin Donovan’s book, THE BILLIONAIRE MURDERS: THE MYSTERIOUS DEATHS OF BARRY AND HONEY SHERMAN, that inspired the series was originally published in fall 2019 and quickly became a national bestseller.

About the book:

Billionaires, philanthropists, socialites . . . victims. Barry and Honey Sherman appeared to lead charmed lives. But the world was shocked in late 2017 when their bodies were found in a bizarre tableau in their elegant Toronto home. First described as murder-suicide — belts looped around their necks, they were found seated beside their basement swimming pool — police later ruled it a staged, targeted double murder. Nothing about the case made sense to friends of the founder of one of the world’s largest generic pharmaceutical firms and his wife, a powerhouse in Canada’s charity world. Together, their wealth has been estimated at well over $4.7 billion.

There was another side to the story. A strategic genius who built a large generic drug company — Apotex Inc. — Barry Sherman was a self-described workaholic, renowned risk-taker, and disruptor during his fifty-year career. Regarded as a generous friend by many, Sherman was also feared by others. He was criticized for stifling academic freedom and using the courts to win at all costs. Upset with building issues at his mansion, he sued and recouped millions from tradespeople. At the time of his death, Sherman had just won a decades-old legal case involving four cousins who wanted 20 percent of his fortune.

Toronto Star investigative journalist Kevin Donovan chronicles the unsettling story from the beginning, interviewing family members, friends, and colleagues, and sheds new light on the Shermans’ lives and the disturbing double murder. Deeply researched and authoritative, The Billionaire Murders is a compulsively readable tale of a strange and perplexing crime.

Kevin Donovan is the Chief Investigative Reporter for the Toronto Star, where he has worked for more than three decades. He has won three National Newspaper Awards, two Michener Awards, and three Canadian Association of Journalists Awards.

Kevin is represented by Samantha Haywood.
