View All Available Formats & Editions


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 Little 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.

While the author is not attempting to accuse anybody, it's no wonder why we as the public have suspected and evven accused the Ramseys. Based on what I read, my own supicions towand the ramseys have taken shape. This book will raise alot of questions that you ayou may want the ramseys to answer.

I'm in high school and for an assignment we were to pick a non-fiction book to read outside of class. Then we were to post a review about our book. I have always been interested in JonBenet. This book was an outstanding! The author didn't make you form an opinion on who the murderer was, the information that was given throughout the entire novel was real, it wasn't anything but statements and facts; which in turn allowed you to form your own opinion based on the evidence. The author put every aspect of the case in there, like we could act as detectives, the D.A's personal lives were involved in this as well as just the case. As many people have, I conclude that it was her mother, and John helped cover it up. I have based that on the fact that her mom had a story that didn't piece together quite right, and John seemed way too calm considering the situation at hand.

Great first book to read when beginning to study this case.The author's use of monolouges works well. The book will have you saying ,'Remind me never to be murdered in Boulder'.

I thought this book was pretty good. The author did a great job on sharing information and allowing you to draw your own conclusion on who killed JonBenet. I thought the ending was terrific.

I think your book is very well put. I really see where you are getting at and it makes perfect sence.The whole book keeps you woundering and in suspence, but the truth follows right behind the whole story. I hope you catch that son of B_ _ _ H. I want the same thing done unto whoever, as that thing has done unto that beautiful baby girl. I have a 6 year old daughter and to think something like that happend, just breaks my heart into two. God willing,God will find you... and destroy whoever you BOTH are.
