"THIRTY-EIGHT WHO SAW MURDER DIDN'T CALL THE POLICE." Queens, New York bar manager Kitty Genovese was almost completely unknown during the twenty-eight years of her brief life, but that one 1964 headline trumpeted a New York Times article that turned her demise into a topic of national interest, almost obsession. This story of a young woman betrayed by the passivity of her neighbors was debunked decades ago, but it persists even now, popping up in recent years in a documentary and two bestsellers. This new book by veteran journalist and award-winning author Kevin Cook (Titanic Thompson; Tommy's Honor) finally tells the full story of a lonely death and its aftermath. Editor's recommendation.
