Fatal Vision by Joe McGinniss

Fatal Vision

Reviewed by Cassidy Hammel (Library Staff)

This is the unbelievably true account of a handsome Princeton educated doctor and Green Beret Captain Jeffrey MacDonald, an all-American man by all appearances who murdered his pregnant wife and two young daughters. McGinniss attended every single court appearance, lived with MacDonald during the trial and wrote this engrossing tale of the obscene actions this man was so close to getting away with. He is still in a cushy prison in California today, adamant he didn’t commit those murders, but when you hear his testimony and compare it against the evidence the police collected…it is extremely damning. What is most interesting about this book is that McGinniss wrote it from an unbiased view point so the reader can judge for themselves whether or not this man committed these crimes. I can guarantee you will never think of the month of February the same way again.
