Fatal Vision is the electrifying true story of Dr. Jeffrey MacDonald, the handsome, Princeton-educated physician convicted of savagely slaying his young pregnant wife and two small children, murders he vehemently denies committing. Bestselling author Joe McGinnis chronicles every aspect of this horrifying and intricate crime, and probes the life and psyche of the magnetic, all-American Jeffrey MacDonald, a golden boy who seemed destined to have it all. The result is a penetration to the heart of darknes that enshrouded one of the most complex criminal cases ever to capture the attention of the American public. It is haunting, stunningly suspenseful-a work that no reader will be able to forget. With 8 pages of dramatic photos and a special epilogue by the author

Review: Fatal Vision

User Review  - Rebecca McNutt - Goodreads

Fatal Vision was easily one of the creepiest true crime novels I've ever read. When a trusted man with a high reputation decides to snap, it's his family who suffers, and this well-written book covers the entire case. It's a disturbing story but a detailed crime novel. Read full review

Review: Fatal Vision

User Review  - Jesse - Goodreads

This is a book about how even when it is completely obvious he did it, it is almost impossible for a white male doctor to get convicted of murdering his family. Read full review
