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  - Goodreads

This was more like Ann Rule's true crime books then I expected; from reviews and news coverage, I was anticipating a more sophisticated account of the events. I'm setting this one aside. Read full review

Deeply disturbing. One of the best true crime books I've ever read (I'm hoping that sounds like a compliment.) Read full review
