About the Author

Kent Alexander 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.
Journalist Kevin Salwen was a longtime Wall Street Journal reporter and editor, who ran the paper's southeastern section during the Olympic Games. He is the coauthor (with his daughter, Hannah) of The Power of Half: One Family's Decision to Stop Taking and Start Giving Back.

Paul Michael, winner of several Earphones Awards, has also won the prestigious Audie Award for best narration. He has acted on stage, radio, television, and in feature films in Canada, Great Britain, and the United States. He has had leading roles in series and made-for-television movies and has guest starred in such series as VIP and Alias. He has been nominated for a Canadian Emmy and has recorded over 150 audiobooks, including the international bestseller The Da Vinci Code.


"Meticulously reported, bracingly written, full of memorable and bizarre characters...It's a story with no winners--except for readers of this terrific book."

-- "Jeffrey Toobin, New York Times bestselling author"

The Suspect is marvelously rich with fresh insights and authority...Alexander kept a detailed journal, and his unique perspective powers the book."

-- "Atlanta Journal-Constitution"

[A] compelling, insightful new investigative account of the bombing and the immediate aftermath...[of] this misunderstood tragedy."

-- "Crime Reads"

"Domestic terror, white nationalism, FBI profilers, a trial by punchline in the infancy of the twenty-four-hour news cycle--what happened in Atlanta's Centennial Park during the '96 Olympics still echoes like a bomb blast today in this engrossing and meticulously researched ticktock about the railroading of Richard Jewell and the killer who almost got away."

-- "Charles Graeber, author of The Breakthrough"

"Lays bare how Jewell became their unwitting victim in the rush to solve the biggest and most public crime of the era. It is a cautionary tale that reminds us that criminal investigations are often lengthy and painstaking, ill-suited for today's media frenzy. The Suspect is an important, highly relevant book."

-- "Janet Napolitano, president of the University of California, former US Secretary of Homeland Security, and former governor of Arizona"
