12/14/12 Sandy Hook Elementary School Newton, Connecticut we remember the numbers: 20 children and 6 adults, murdered in a place of nurture and trust. We remember the names: teachers like Victoria Soto, who lost her life protecting her students. A shooter named Adam Lanza. And we... remember the questions: outraged conjecture instantly monopolized the worldwide response to the tragedy--while the truth went missing. here is the definitive journalistic account of Newtown, an essential examination of the facts-- not only of that horrific day but the perfect storm of mental instability and obsession that preceded it and, in the aftermath of unspeakable heartbreak, the controversy that continues to play out on the national stage. Drawn from previously undisclosed emails, police reports, and in-depth interviews, Newtown: An American Tragedy breaks through a miasma of misinformation with its comprehensive and astonishing portrayal. this is the vital story that must be told-- today --if we are to prevent another American tragedy in the days to come.
