The Suspect is “a masterful true-crime account of the 1996 Centennial Olympic Park bombing that captured the world's attention, and the heroic security guard-turned-suspect at the heart of it all.” Recently also the subject of the film Richard Jewell, directed by Clint Eastwood, this is “a gripping story of the rise of domestic terrorism in America, the advent of the 24/7 news cycle, and an innocent man’s fight to clear his name.”
Co-author Kevin Salwen was a longtime Wall Street Journal reporter and editor, who ran the paper’s southeastern section during the Olympic Games. He is also the co-author (with his daughter, Hannah) of The Power of Half: One Family’s Decision to Stop Taking and Start Giving Back.
