Product Details


"CRUEL DOUBT is not only about a crime and a trial and remarkable conflicts of interest. It is also, beneath its surface and within its heart, about Joe McGinniss as a quester-for-truth, literary detective, salver and healer."—Frederick Busch, The New York Times Book Review

"More a psychodrama than a detective story, McGinniss has drawn a riveting portrait of parental devotion that flies in the face of truth."—Library Journal
"Joe McGinniss just keeps writing stories that transcend the [true crime] genre, and CRUEL DOUBT is the best of the lot."—Clarence Petersen, Chicago Tribune
"McGinniss is the Alfred Hitchcock of the true-crime genre, a genre he often transcends."—Boston Globe
"McGinniss shows again why he heads the ranks of true crime authors–delivering a page-burner of shifting suspicions, macabre ironies, and reversals of field too extreme for fiction."—Kirkus Reviews

"With CRUEL DOUBT, McGinniss puts more distance between himself and the rest of the pack…He is a touchstone for the traumatized, the troubled, and the treacherous."—Hartford Courant

"One of the best true crime stories ever written."—The Philadelpha Inquirer
