Allen Potter and Fred
Bost spent nearly twelve years researching
this exhaustive and definitive record of the MacDonald case.
The book contains detailed documentation regarding the government's
theory of the case against Dr. MacDonald, suppressed evidence, substantiation
of Dr. MacDonald's version of events, and more. This is not
light reading, but rather, a resource for those interested in gaining
clarification on specific questions/case-related issues.
Justice is based largely upon laboratory notes suppressed at
trial and secured years later through the Freedom of Information
Act. Besides debunking author Joe McGinniss' facile and unfounded
drug theory in the best-seller Fatal Vision, and showing
how McGinniss worked closely with his editor to delete references
that might "make MacDonald look innocent", Fatal Justice
reveals glaring contradictions and discrepancies between the government's
claims about the evidence at trial, and the evidence as it was actually
found, recorded, and tested by the government's own investigators
an explosive new study...the tightly woven
for MacDonald's guilt is methodically unraveled
...in chillingly well-documented detail."

exculpatory evidence; that many witnesses were never properly interviewed."

and truly impressive."
