Publisher's Summary

Perhaps the most compelling murder case of our day, the death of six-year-old JonBenet Ramsey galvanized the nation - and years after it occurred, the mystery still endures. Who killed the young beauty queen and why? Who is covering up for whom, and who is simply lying? In JonBenet, the most authoritative and comprehensive study of the Ramsey murder, a former lead Boulder Police detective, Steve Thomas, explores the case in vivid and fascinating detail - pointing the way toward an analysis of the evidence some deem too shocking to consider.
Here, Thomas raises these and many other provocative questions:
How was the investigation botched from the beginning, and why did police so carelessly allow the crime scene to be tampered with?
Why were John and Patsy Ramsey protected from early questioning and any lie-detector tests, even though their stories and behavior were erratic, suspicious, and inconsistent?
Why was crucial evidence ignored, why were certain key witnesses unquestioned by detectives, and why were the Ramseys privy to sensitive information about the case and even police reports?


What the Critics Say

"From my investigation of the Ramsey murder, Steve Thomas was the lead detective on the case from the beginning and may know what happened better than anyone." (Lawrence Schiller, New York Times best-selling author)

Tonal Misfire

There are three sides to every story. Your side. My side. The truth. I can't imagine the stress and pressure one is under being a detective in a highly publicized, unsolved murder. This guy points so many fingers and makes so many excuses, he could make that his new job. There is no sense of personal or even a unified departmental responsibility for the many many muck-ups that even he alleges his department made. The whole read comes off to me as an exoneration of himself; something he needed more than anyone else. Maybe it just should have been his journal.
