Columbine: A True Crime Story is the first book of investigative journalism to tell the complete story of that day, the far-reaching consequences, and the common denominators among school shooters across the country.
Jeff Kass was one of the first reporters on scene and has continued to cover the story as a staff writer for Denver's Rocky Mountain News. He has broken national stories on the shootings such as leaked crime scene photos and a killer's sealed diversion files. The result of ten years of research and exclusive information, the book reaches into fundamental American themes of violence, racism, parenting and policing. Concluding with the tale of the tattered police investigation and how one of the most controversial victims' families faces down a modern American tragedy as the cameras roll, Columbine, A True Crime Story is a classic in the tradition of In Cold Blood and The Executioner's Song.
