Film tie-in
On 27th July, 1996, a hapless former cop turned hypervigilant security guard named Richard Jewell spotted a suspicious bag in Atlanta's Centennial Park, the town square of the 1996 Summer Games. Inside was a bomb, the largest of its kind in FBI and ATF history. Minutes later, the bomb detonated amid a crowd of 50,000 people. But thanks to Jewell, it only wounded 111 and killed two, not the untold scores who would have otherwise died. With the eyes of the world on Atlanta, the Games continued. But the pressure to find the bomber was intense. Within 72 hours, Jewell went from the hero to the FBI's main suspect. What really happened that evening? Here the authors reconstruct all the events.

Excellent book. Clint Eastwood recently directed a film on this topic. However, the book is far better and follows the lives of all of the main principals involved in the matter. It would have been possible to make several films out of this book - all of which would have been very interesting
