Tears of Rage - Audio Cassette, Abridged Author:John Walsh with Susan Schindehette As the host of the immensely popular America's Most Wanted, John Walsh has been instrumental in the capture of nearly four hundred and fifty of this country's most dangerous fugitives. However, few know the full story of the personal tragedy behind his public crusade: the 1981 abduction and murder of his six-year-old son, Adam. Here, for the f... more »irst time, Walsh tells the wrenching tale of Adam's death -- and the infuriating conspiracy of events that have kept America's No. 1 crime fighter from obtaining justice and closure for himself and his family.
This is the powerful story of Walsh's transformation from grieving father to full-time activist, and how he enlarged the search for Adam's killer into an exhuastive, sixteen-year battle on behalf of thousands of missing and abused children. Today, his actions have sparked an international victim's rights movement that gives a voice to the millions each year who lives are touched by violent crime.
The dramatic impact of John Walsh's fight for change is finally be felt among policy-makers, law enforcement agencies, and parents. The heartbreaking story chronicled in Tears of Rage is, ultimately, the story of a true American hero: a man who challenged the system in the name of his son.
