Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Tanenbaum gives a detailed account of the Career Girl Murders in Manhattan in 1963, the wrongful arrest and poor treatment of George Whitmore Jr., and the determined effort by assistant district attorney Mel Glass to correct the wrongs of a police department that neglected justice. Narrator Traber Burns has a deep, gravelly voice and deliberate delivery that demands listener attention. He does well with the book's expository sections, and navigates the nuances of the case with ease. Burns also shines in delivering voices that are distinct and embody the mood, attitude, and minds of the many people involved in the case. A Kensington House hardcover. (June)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

New York Times bestselling author and renowned prosecuting attorney Robert K. Tanenbaum provides the first insiders account of the historic Wylie-Hoffert case, from the shocking double-murder to the wrenching interrogation of an innocent young man, and the heroic Assistant District Attorney who risked everything to unravel a disgraceful injustice. Here is a gripping chronicle of the unnerving crime that led to the Miranda Rights, and of the courageous stand that forever reformed the American justice system.

It was a muggy summer day in New York when Janice Wylie and Emily Hoffert were raped and murdered in their apartment on Manhattans fashionable Upper East Side. Months passed as their families grieved the unthinkable and a shaken city awaited answers. Finally, Brooklyn police arrested George Whitmore, Jr., a nineteen-year-old with an I.Q. of less than 70. But his incarceration would ultimately entail a host of shocking law enforcement missteps and cover-ups.

Whitmore had confessed. Yet Mel Glass, a young Manhattan Assistant D.A. not even assigned to the Homicide Bureau, was troubled by the investigation. With the blessing of legendary D.A. Frank Hogan, Glass tirelessly immersed himself in the case. So began an epic quest for justice, culminating in a courtroom showdown in which the Brooklyn arresting cops refused to admit their flagrant errors, providing a complete defense to a vicious predator. The outcome would reach far beyond the individuals involved.

Including trial transcripts and never before published crime scene photos, here is a captivating depiction of one of the most intense manhunts of our time. Echoes of My Soul is also a testament to the power of individuals like Glass and Hogan, without whom the real killer would never have been convicted and an unjustly accused man would have been jailed for life. And we may never have gained the legal safeguards that protect us today.
