THE SUSPECT is a masterful account of the 1996 Olympic Park bombing in Atlanta and the man who was at first a hero and then the FBI's main suspect: security guard Richard Jewell, a former police officer who discovered the bomb before it detonated, saving countless lives. Former U.S. Attorney Kent Alexander and former Wall Street Journal reporter Kevin Salwen reconstruct all the events leading up to, during, and after the Olympic bombing from mountains of law enforcement evidence and the extensive personal records of key players, including Richard himself, in a sharply written narrative that brings the reader back to the tumultuous events surrounding one of America's most infamous domestic terrorist attacks.


THIS COPY (shown below) was signed on the title page by Kent Alexander at his office. It is a new, unread first edition, opened only for signing. Published in November, 2019 by Harry N. Abrams, an subsidiary of La Martinière Groupe.


KENT ALEXANDER (pictured below from our Wall of Fame) was the US Attorney for the Northern District of Georgia at the time of the 1996 Olympics. He spent hundreds of hours in meetings with the FBI about the bombing, and ultimately, he wrote and hand-delivered Jewell’s clearance letter. Thank you Kent Alexander for signing our books.
