Hardback. As the host of the immensely popular 'America's Most Wanted,' the author has been instrumental in the capture of nearly 450 of America's most dangerous fugitives. However, few know the full story of the personal tragedy behind his public crusade: the 1981 abduction and murder of his 6yr old son, Adam. Here, for the first time, Walsh, his wife, Reve, and their closest friends tell the wrenching tale of Adam's death - and the infuriating conspiracy of events that have kept America's No. 1 crime fighter from obtaining justice and closure for himself and his family. This is the powerful story of Walsh's transformation from grieving father to full-time activist, and how he enlarged the search for Adam's killer into an exhaustive, 16yr battle on behalf of thousands of missing and abused children. His efforts to put the faces of missing children on milk cartons marked the beginning of a campaign to raise national awareness. Today his actions have sparked an international victims' rights movement that gives a voice to the millions each year whose lives are touched by violent crime. Illus. + Appendix. 318pp. 8vo. lge. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. in Vg+ dw.
