Product Description

From the Publisher

William Sessions, Former Director of the F.B.I.:
"Christopher Ruddy has detailed a significant array of facts and issues involving the death of Mr. Foster. His work is serious and compelling. While enduring great criticism, he has tenaciously argued a persuasive case that the American public has not been told the complete facts of the case.

Mr. Ruddy has carefully avoided drawing undue inferences about the death. His reporting raises serious concerns about the handling of the Foster case. It is legitimate to question the process employed by authorities to make their conclusions." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Christopher Ruddy clearly states facts ("that" which is actual and can be substantiated) and from that he makes some logical arguments which raise significant questions to the Strange Death of Vince Foster. Notably, facts contradict the possibility that Foster was shot/died in the Park! This is crititcal to the raising of all sorts of questions and thus the unresolved issues. We should be thankful that Mr. Ruddy took the time to document and investigate an incident that would have otherwised received a "white washing". Foster was a top official in the White House... comparatively little official effort was given to follow through with the contradictory questions. It was immediately made a suicide!!! This conclusion could not be based on the scene at the Park. Ruddy does not explicitly conclude that Foster was murdered or committed suicide. But, he does say: if Foster did commit suicide it was not in the Park! If not in the Park, then "Where?" He does leave the question open that Foster may have been murdered and placed in the Park. It has also been mentioned that Foster had a meeting scheduled with Hillary Clinton the day of his death! I have never heard investigative follow-up to this item. Foster does an excellent, pain-staking job to compile the events, issues, and questions of the Foster incident...he is what American Investigative Journalism should be about. Document the facts regardless of the resistance from the powers that be. This book can be easily read and the reader is allowed to conclude their own results and questions! Good job Christopher Ruddy!

Format: Hardcover
Ruddy has extensively researched his topic and is to be congratulated for all the work he put into this book. A top-notch mystery if it were only fiction, however, as true-crime, it is frightening. Ruddy demonstrates how power can so easily be abused in a well-written, moderately easy-to-understand book. The reader must approach this book with an open mind, study the evidence the author presents and come to his/her own conclusion. There are dozens of inconsistencies regarding Mr. Foster's death, and Mr. Ruddy examines them all. I was appalled at one particular incident he relates. If a good friend of mine suffered death under questionable circumstances, I would want a detailed investigation, however, the White House kept pushing to "hurry up," "wrap it up." Even the most avid Clinton-lover will have to admit that "something's rotten in the state of Washington, DC." Perhaps when this administration is out-of-office and no longer in power, someone will finally tell the truth. Ruddy is very courageous to name names, quote documents and testimony extensively. He has been blacklisted by the White House. How much more do we need to know?

Christopher Ruddy has written a well-documented account of a very disturbing incident. You will no doubt be amazed at some of the facts that he mentions.
For instance, Foster's eyeglasses were found about 20 feet from his body. Sounds logical: he must have thrown them before the suicide. But actually, the glasses had gunpowder residue on them.
It was also claimed that Foster walked through Fort Marcy Park, which consists of a dirt path. Of course, no dirt or grass stains were found on Foster's shoes.
The Park Police searched Foster at the scene and found no keys on him. But his 1989 Honda was parked there. Later, at the morgue, not one but TWO sets of keys were found on Foster. A nurse there said that Messrs. Livingstone and Kennedy arrived before the Police to identify the body.
Or the gun. When Foster's wife was shown the gun, she said she didn't recognize it.
I could go on and on. Read this book and find out the truth. It's an excellent piece of work.

Format: Hardcover
Whether your predilection is liberal or conservative, you must agree that the death of Vincent Foster was most unusual. Christopher Ruddy focuses on these unusual circumstances in a compelling narrative that reveals the possibility of obstruction of justice both within and outside the White House. I read the book cover to cover without putting it down. The thing I liked most about Ruddy's treatment was the fact that he did not confuse the reader by inserting his own beliefs into the book. He states the facts, but doesn't draw the obvious conclusions. He allows the reader to draw his or her own conclusions. If you like a good murder mystery; if you like a good conspiracy drama; if you like to believe that someone still cares about the Constitution, you'll like this book.

I very much enjoyed Mr.Ruddy's book.It proved to me that there was a totally bungled police investigation and that gave some members of The Whitehouse Team(Bill and Hillary's closest chums)the opportunity to remove the various documents that could cause(at best)embarrassment.Whether or not Mr.Foster was murdered remains unproved but enough questions were raised by this book,for an investigation by qualified but non-political experts to be instigated... I look forward to not only reading Mr.Ruddy's next book but also the subject matter assuming the press have not destroyed his reputation as they have with so many who express the opinion of the people.
