Hardback. Nothing written about the death of JonBenet Ramsey can possibly prepare the reader for the revelations in this book. Here, the author reveals for the first time the uncensored true story of the events that unfolded on Christmas night of 1996 and the unthinkable damage suffered by a community in the aftermath. This definitive account finally answers the question : What happened in the town of Boulder, Colorado? The author tells the story of a city at war with itself: the bitter struggle between John and Patsy Ramsey and local law enforcement; the clash between the District Attorney and the Boulder police; and the tabloid media that had taken upon itself the responsibility of issuing blame. The reader is drawn into the maelstrom of the heated arguments and rapid-fire events surrounding the investigation - the anguish, the blunders, the rivalries, the jealousies, and the peripheral victims on every side. The author thoroughly re-creates every aspect of this complex case in a powerful story drawn from recorded interviews with investigators, prosecutors, law enforcement members and their confidants, and members of the Ramsey family themselves. He uncovers the mysteries that bewildered the nation. Why were the Ramseys, the targets of the investigation, able to obtain knowledge of critical evidence in the case and control the direction of a police inquiry? Can the answer to the murder be found in the pen and writing pad used for the ransom note? Was it possible for an intruder to have killed JonBenet that night? And what did the Ramseys tell the police and District Attorney in more than 20 hours of questioning? Beyond these revelations and hundreds more, the book is a brilliant portrait of an inscrutable family thrust under the spotlight of public suspicion and an affluent, tranquil city torn apart by a crime it was not prepared to deal with. With Epilogue, Character List, and Appendices. 621pp. lge. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. V. lightly browned edges o/w Nr. F. in V+ dw.
