Authors Kent Alexander & Kevin Salwen join Nick Digilio for an extended conversation on their book “The Suspect: An Olympic Bombing, The FBI, The Media and Richard Jewell, The Man Caught in the Middle”.

Drawing on their respective experience as a former U.S. Attorney and a Wall Street Journal reporter, they dive deep into how Jewell went from American hero to suspected criminal and the far reaching impact of the case.
