Columbine: A True Crime Story is the first book of investigative journalism to tell the complete story of Littleton, Colorado’s 1999 mass shooting, its far-reaching consequences, and common characteristics amongst public shooters across the country. The result of fifteen years of research and exclusive information, Jeff Kass’s comprehensive account explores fundamental American themes of violence, racism, parenting, and policing. Concluding with new material about public shootings since Columbine and how communities can stop such horrific events from happening in the future, this updated and revised edition remains a classic in the tradition of In Cold Blood and The Executioner’s Song.

“We’ve heard this all before. We’re tired of hearing it now. Why go back to Columbine again? But there are a lot of people who haven’t heard all this.”
