Nothing written about the death of JonBenet Ramsey can
possibly prepare the reader for the revelations in this
book. Here, acclaimed writer Lawrence Schiller 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
gripping, definitive account finally answers the question:
What happened in the town of Boulder, Colorado?
PERFECT MURDER, PERFECT TOWN 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 has 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.
As he did in AMERICAN TRAGEDY, Lawrence Schiller thoroughly
re-creates every aspect of this complex case in a powerful,
spellbinding 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 have bewildered
the nation for more than two years. Why were the Ramseys,
the target 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 the District
Attorney in more than twenty hours of questioning?
Beyond these revelations and hundreds more, PERFECT MURDER,
PERFECT TOWN 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. Meticulously researched and
masterfully written, this is a tour de force that will be
read for years to come.
