Sandy Hook Elementary School
We remember the numbers: 20 children and 6 adults, murdered in a place of nurture and trust. We remember the names: teachers like Victoria Soto, who lost her life protecting her students. A shooter named Adam Lanza. And we remember the questions: outraged conjecture instantly monopolized the worldwide response to the tragedy, while the truth went missing.
Here is the definitive journalistic account of Newtown, an essential examination of the facts-not only of that horrific day but the perfect storm of mental instability and obsession that preceded it and, in the aftermath of unspeakable heartbreak, the controversy that continues to play out on the national stage. Drawn from previously undisclosed emails, police reports, and in-depth interviews, Newtown: An American Tragedy breaks through a miasma of misinformation with its comprehensive and astonishing portrayal.
This is the vital story that must be told today if we are to prevent another American tragedy in the days to come.

"Written by a New York Daily News reporter, this is the first in-depth journalistic account of the Newtown, Connecticut, shooting that resulted in the deaths of 26 people, mostly school children. ItÕs a factual account, but emotion is never far from its pages. Narrating a work such as this requires a subtle balancing act, and Adam Verner manages fairly well. He reads with a respectful voice and avoids sounding maudlin. As he keeps the story at the center, his low tone has a reassuring quality. However, what prevents his performance from rising above the ordinary is that heÕs never far from a funereal whisper. At times, itÕs difficult to follow the book because he loses vigor and one must lean in to hear. HeÕs obviously reflecting the gravitas of the tragedy, but it does detract from oneÕs listening experience. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
