Columbine: A True Crime Story
A victim, the killers and the nation's search for answers

In Bookstores April 1, 2009

Ten years after Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold killed twelve classmates and a teacher, Columbine remains the world's most iconic school shooting.

Columbine: A True Crime Story, a victim, the killers and the nation's search for answers is the first book of investigative journalism to tell the complete story of that day, the far-reaching consequences, and the common denominators among school shooters across the country.

Jeff Kass was one of the first reporters on the scene and has continued to cover the story as a staff writer for Denver's Rocky Mountain News.

He has broken national stories on the shootings such as leaked crime scene photos, and the sealed diversion files of the killers. He has also reported the story extensively for the Boston Globe, Christian Science Monitor, Newsday, and U.S. News & World Report.

After six, Joy Cardin and her guest psychologist explore John McCain?s temper. "I have a temper, to state the obvious," wrote John McCain in his 2002 memoir, "which I have tried to control with varying degrees of success because it does not always serve my interest or the public's."

Guest: Aubrey Immelman, associate professor of psychology,
College of Saint Benedict and Saint John?s University, Collegeville, MN.
