Description

“Les Standiford’s account of the decades-long attempt to solve the murder of Adam Walsh is chilling, heartbreaking, hopeful, and as relentlessly suspenseful as anything I’ve ever read. A triumph in every way.”
—Dennis Lehane, author of Mystic River

“The most significant missing child case since the Lindbergh’s….A taut, compelling and often touching book about a long march to justice.”
—Scott Turow, author of Presumed Innocent

The abduction that changed America forever, the 1981 kidnapping and murder of six-year-old Adam Walsh—son of John Walsh, host of the Fox TV series America’s Most Wanted—in Hollywood, Florida, was a crime that went unsolved for a quarter of a century. Bringing Adam Home by author Les Standiford is a harrowing account of the terrible crime and its dramatic consequences, the emotional story of a father and mother’s efforts to seek justice and resolve the loss of their child, and a compelling portrait of Miami Beach Homicide Detective Joe Matthews, whose unwavering dedication brought the Adam Walsh case to its resolution.

    An exciting read. Hard to put down! I felt frustrated and angry the whole time about the way Hollywood PD handled the case. Felt bad for Joe Harrison, the way he was treated and not getting the recognition he so rightly deserved. My heart broke for John and Revee Walsh. I thank them for the work they have done for missing and abused children. I also thank Joe Harrison for hard work and determination. Helen, Kentucky

    I had difficulty getting through this account. I had a hard time falling asleep because I was disturbed by the actions of so many involved in this story from the main individual responsible to all the others who failed to do something! Sadly, too many people feel that somebody else will do something or they do not want to get involved. Let Adam's story be a fresh reminder to ALL of us that we all have a responsibility to keep all children safe, whether they are our own or someone else's! Thank you to people like Joe and John who never gave up! I am a more cautious parent because of Adam's story. I was 12 when this happened. Thank you for revealing such sensitive stories.
