Sinossi

On October 17, 1987, Jack Alan Davis, Jr. disappeared. Five days later, his body was found at the bottom of a campus stairwell. By noon the next day, the county coroner announced he drank too much alcohol, passed out and choked to death on his own vomit—not everyone believed him.

This moving and ultimately redemptive book tells the story of Jack, the student who died at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, of the older brother who was determined to find out how Jack died, and of the tireless reporter who devoted herself to finding justice and truth for Jack’s family. The true story takes readers from idyllic campus scenes haunted by imagines of senseless and brutal death, to the coroner’s examination room, all while questioning how we treat the dead—and how we treat those who survive.
As Marlene Gentilcore tells her readers in the final pages of Justice Wanted, “Looking back now, I realize that no matter the outcome of our...courageous quest, we have lived the real American dream”—fighting for the promise of a nation based on justice for all.

Freelance writer, Marlene Gentilcore earned her Journalism/Pre-Law degree at the University of Pittsburgh; won the Pennsylvania Keystone Press Award for Investigative Reporting and appeared on Unsolved Mysteries. She is currently at work on her next book.

5.0 su 5 stelle Hauntingly Addictive 23 luglio 2011

Some books grab you and won't let you go. They will torment you as you try to sleep. Some books will lure you all day as you tend to daily tasks. You know the adventure awaits or the mystery needs more investigation to be solved. "Justice Wanted" is such a book for me. I don't allow myself to read it during the day, because I would get nothing done, but at night I read it until I can't keep my eyes open any longer and then this mystery haunts my dreams. Ms Gentilcore takes us on a sine wave tour of investigative reporting. Thanks for the roller coaster ride Ms Gentilcore.

I couldn't put this book down. The author allows us to accompany her along the twists and turns of a crime investigation no one wanted to acknowledge let alone find justice.

I was at IUP when this young man lost his life, walked right by that stairwell every day. This book isn't the best writing, but kudos to Ms. Gentilcore for bringing up a lot of questions that have never been answered. There were rumors flying all over campus at the time, but now that everyone involved is gone, grown up and off living lives, maybe someone, somewhere will read this book and decide to come forward with information. This is an interesting book.

Though his mysterious/tragic death occurred 4 years before I attended IUP, a lot of students were *still* gossiping about it. It wouldn't surprise me *at all* if the "group" of people whom the author implies might have been involved *were* in fact behind Jack's death. Their reputation was just as bad when I was at IUP.
