Summary:

A contributing source for the Warner Bros.' film Richard Jewell starring Sam Rockwell, Kathy Bates, Jon Hamm, Olivia Wilde and Paul Walter Hauser!
A gripping insider account of the terrorist bombing at the 1996 Olympic Games that captured the world's attention, and the heroic security guard-turned-suspect at the heart of it all
On July 27, 1996, a hapless former cop turned hypervigilant security guard named Richard Jewell spotted a suspicious bag in Atlanta's Centennial Olympic Park, the town square of the 1996 Summer Games. Inside was a bomb, the largest of its kind in FBI and ATF history. Minutes later, the bomb remotely detonated by the attacker amid a crowd of 50,000 people. But thanks to Jewell, it only killed two and wounded 111, not the hundreds who authorities estimated could have otherwise died. With the eyes of the world on Atlanta, the games continued. But the pressure to find the bomber was intense. Within seventy-two hours, Jewell went from the hero to the FBI's main suspect, a false accusation that forever changed his life and let the true bomber roam free to strike again.
In a triumph of reporting and access, Kent Alexander and Kevin Salwen's The Suspect 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.

    I lived in Atlanta when all this happened but had forgotten so many details. This book provided so many back stories to try to explain some actions. But unfortunately, some actions couldn't be explained by anything but blind ambition, unbelievable ego, total inability to consider anything that didn't support one's opinion, and plain old' stupidity.

    I forgot so much of this story. Didn’t realize that Eric Rudolph didn’t get the death penalty. Interesting about Kathy Scruggs and how she got her story. More so, I am so sorry Richard Jewell was dealt such a rough hand. Tragic the lives that were lost. Very compelling story.

    Wow, great book. No good deed goes unpunished.
