From Lawrence Schiller, the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller American Tragedy, comes the definitive account of the most puzzling homicide in recent history.
Nothing reported about this case can possibly prepare the reader for the revelations in this book; the untold story of the investigation into the death of JonBenet Ramsey. The setting is Boulder, Colorado, a town of 90,000 people that sits at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. There lies the story of what really happened to ttle Miss Colorado, told not only in frightful detail, but in the words of witnesses, investigators, prosecutors and lawyers as they struggle to unravel the events of December 26, 1996.
Based on hundreds of exclusive interviews conducted by Schiller and Charles Brennan of the Rocky Mountain News, Lawrence Schiller's book draws the reader deep within the inner circle of the investigators, their confidantes, the city, and the Ramseys themselves. He not only engages the reader with the details of the murder and its aftermath, but with the history of Boulder and its philosophy that has manifested itself in this case.
