***PRE-ORDER HERE FOR A COPY PERSONALLY AUTOGRAPHED TO YOU BY THE AUTHOR (on this site only)***
A FASCINATING AND COLORFUL BIOGRAPHY THAT COVERS INTIMATE NEW DETAILS OF DOROTHY'S LIFE THAT NO ONE ELSE HAS EVER REPORTED!
Dorothy Kilgallen may be best remembered for her weekly appearances on the television game show “What’s My Line?” but she was also a columnist with the far-reaching Hearst syndicate who covered some of the most talked about court cases of the mid-20th century.
A Pulitzer Prize-nominated reporter, she became entrenched in the bizarre trial of Jack Ruby and was the only reporter to score one-on-one interviews with Lee Harvey Oswald’s killer. Long before JFK assassination buffs cashed in on their theories, Dorothy was reporting her facts and findings in her columns in real time.
She publicly discredited the Warren Commission’s assessments of that day in Dallas, having secured exclusive early access to its findings. She vowed to blow the lid off the JFK assassination before she was silenced with the notes for her forthcoming book on the slaying never to be seen again.
Using rare archival materials, interviews with members of her inner circle who were never questioned by authorities, police reports, previously unknown toxicologist findings that shed new light on what happened, newspaper and magazine articles, film and television clips, author Sara Jordan-Heintz delves into the life of one of America’s most enigmatic journalistic personalities whom Ernest Hemingway once called “the greatest female writer in the world.” This is her story.
This 375-page book also includes many rare photos never seen before!

Sara Jordan-Heintz's previous reporting on Kilgallen in a lengthy Midwest Today magazine article entitled “Who Killed Dorothy Kilgallen?” was used as the basis for four books by another author, besides inspiring separate chapters in books by still more authors, including a New York Times best-seller. Now read THE MOST AUTHORITATIVE ACCOUNT of Dorothy Kilgallen's life and death by the investigative reporter who was the first to publicly identify the number one (unofficial) suspect in DK's death, get self-incriminating quotes from him, reveal important new forensic evidence, as well as disclose extensive new information (including eyewitness interviews) that author Lee Israel never included in her book years ago on Dorothy.
