Simple Truths: The Real Story of the Oklahoma City Bombing Investigation
Written by Jon Hershley, Larry Tongate, and Bob Burke
The world was stunned on April 19,1995, by the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City that killed 168 men, women, and children. In the aftermath of this horrific act, Americans did not want to believe that two clean-shaven, short-haired former army veterans could plan and carry out the most violent act of domestic terrorism in United States history.
This book is a riveting, detailed explanation of the FBI's investigation—the largest criminal investigation in history. It is intended to provide a much-needed factual history of the case. It will dispel the various inaccurate and irresponsible theories that this notorious event spawned.
Hersley and Tongate, the primary agents on the case, wrote the book with Burke, an Oklahoma City attorney and historian.
