Who Killed Christopher Goodman?
Based on a True Crime

author: Allan Wolf

Everybody likes Chris Goodman. Sure, hes a little odd. He wears those funny bell-bottoms and he really likes the word ennui and he shakes your hand when he meets you, but hes also the kind of guy whos always up for a good time, always happy to lend a hand. Everybody likes Chris Goodman, which makes it especially shocking when hes murdered. Here, in a stunning multi-voiced narrative including the perspective of the fifteen-year-old killer and based on a true and terrible crime that occurred when he was in high school, author Allan Wolf sets out to answer the first question that comes to mind in moments of unthinkable tragedy: how could a thing like this happen?

Inspired by a tragic true event in his past, Allan Wolf examines the circumstances of one boys inexplicable murder and the fateful summer leading up to it.
