Author Scott Bartz contacted me about continuing his series on the Tylenol Murders. This is book 2, “Tylenol Man: A 30-Year Quest to Close the Tylenol Murders Case.”
Look for it coming soon to print and ebook!
BLURB: The man who led the investigation into the 1982 Tylenol murders has repeatedly called James Lewis the prime suspect. Lewis had sent a letter to Johnson & Johnson, the maker of Tylenol, demanding $1 to stop the killing. The letter was viewed as a hoax, and officials said Lewis was not a legitimate suspect. But when the investigation went cold, a handful of Illinois authorities began to state publicly that Lewis had been the prime suspect all along. In 1989, the U.S. Parole Commission declared that James Lewis was indeed the Tylenol killer. However, no evidence was ever presented to link Lewis to the murders. Lewis was thrust into the spotlight again in 2009 when the Tylenol murders investigation was reactivated and the FBI searched Lewis’s apartment in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Is Lewis the Tylenol killer? Or, has he been unjustly vilified by frustrated investigators seeking a scapegoat? Lewis has repeatedly refused to be interviewed about the case – until now. Drawing on personal interviews with Lewis, thousands of archived news articles, court documents, and dozens of emails between Lewis and the FBI agent who spent much of his career trying to solve the Tylenol murders, this compelling narrative provides a behind-the-scenes account of the 30-year investigation that targeted James Lewis as the prime suspect for the Tylenol murders.
