A true crime story. Bartz's painstaking attention to detail and passion for revealing the truth of what really happened in 1982 are to be commended.
Seven people died near Chicago after taking cyanide-laced Tylenol capsules on September 29, 1982. The unsolved Tylenol murders case has perplexed federal, state, and local authorities for 30 years. Now, this riveting expose tells the story of an inquiry led astray from the start and marred by the mishandling and destruction of evidence.
Drawing on thousands of archived news articles, police reports, court documents, interviews with the prime suspects, and interviews with authorities who were involved in the investigation, this compelling narrative provides a revelatory account of the investigation into the murders that terrorized a nation.
