Synopsis

"Stunning, riveting." --Linda Fairstein

"Tanenbaum knows this territory better than anyone." –Linda Fairstein

It was a muggy summer day when Janice Wylie and Emily Hoffert were murdered in their apartment on Manhattan's Upper East Side. Months passed before police arrested George Whitmore, Jr., and he confessed to the crime. But his incarceration would entail a host of shocking law enforcement missteps and cover-ups. In this first insider's account, New York Times bestselling author Robert K. Tanenbaum delivers a page-turning real-life thriller about this historic case--from the brutal crime to the wrenching conviction, which forever reformed the American justice system.

"A true crime classic, brilliantly written and unfailingly riveting." --Vincent Bugliosi
