OKLAHOMA CITY: What the Investigation Missed—and Why It Still Matters
On April 19, 1995, Tim McVeigh drove into downtown
Oklahoma City in a rented Ryder truck containing
a fertilizer bomb that he and his Army
buddy Terry Nichols had made the previous day.
He parked, hopped out of the truck and walked
away. Shortly after 9 a.m., the bomb exploded,
killing 168 people. McVeigh claimed he’d worked
only with Nichols, but his was just one version of
events—and much of it was wrong.
In OKLAHOMA CITY: What the Investigation Missed - and Why It Still Matters, veteran journalists Andrew Gumbel and
Roger G. Charles demonstrate how much was
missed including who inspired the plot and who
else was involved. OKLAHOMA CITY gives the fullest
account to date of the plot and the investigation, exposing the eccentric, fractious,
weird and wildly paranoid characters involved.
