Are they vengeful, cool-blooded killers? Or model employees driven beyond the brink of madness? Bloody massacres across America have struck like an epidemic, leaving a stunned nation in shock and mourning as growing numbers of disgruntled postal workers savagely strike out at the bosses who criticized or fired them.
With this deadly violence on the rise, true crime author Don Lassester travels coast to coast probing the lives and grisly crimes of these enraged killers. Including first-hand accounts by the survivors and witnesses, GOING POSTAL asks who's to blame as it explores this horrifying, exclusively American phenomenon that is turning post offices into ticking time bombs.
