Case Closed provides a solid background of the 2001 anthrax case which could not have been attained through the news media. It was concise and informative and offered credibility to the events which in my opinion could have very likely occurred. A well-known scientist accused of this hideous crime seven years after his death when the case is still unsolved and no other person brought forward, is a crime in itself.

FICTION?? MAYBE?? BUT I DON'T THINK SO!! MORE LIKELY AN EXCELLENT INTERPRETATION OF WHAT MAY HAVE REALLY HAPPENED. THE MISHANDLING OF THE ANTHRAX ATTACKS INVESTIGATION IS JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF THE WAY THE PAST ADMINISTRATION "MANAGED" EVENTS TO FIT THEIR AGENDA. LEW IS A GREAT INVESTIGATIVE WRITER. THE BOOK IS COMPELLING, ONCE YOU START YOU CANNOT PUT IT DOWN.AND THE END IS ...... WELL YOU WILL HAVE TO READ IT TO FIND OUT.

The author states loud and clear that this book is fiction. But, anyone who has witnessed the last eight years of American history sees great similarities in the underhanded way the last Administration dealt with issues and the way this "fictional" Administration worked. I never have given much credence to conspiracy theories but the investigation of the Anthrax attacks makes one stop and really think about it. Weinstein raises some very interesting and disturbing theories. If it was not meant to make one think about the real situation, the book would still be a great read. It is suspenceful and a real page turner. Please tell me its not true!

Format: Kindle Edition
I read Case Closed in serial form, securing installments from the author's website. The novel is written as a fast-paced thriller and I was always eager to receive the next installment. I was also grateful that the end of a section forced me to put the book down and go to sleep - otherwise I'd have been up all night. The writing is sparce, driven by a plausible plot that allows the reader to think through the crime/mystery along with the protagonist. Despite the troubling reality of the subject matter, it is a thoroughly enjoyable and illuminating read.

The writer acknowledges that the novel is fiction, but provides sufficient factual context to sustain his theory on how this dramatic historical footnote could have played out as it did. The only easy answers to the questions raised in Case Closed are that the investigation was pursued without regard to basic investigative protocol and that this had to have been intentional. Even if you do not believe that the Bush Administration repeatedly allowed politics and manipulation of public sentiment to trump fact and law, you will have to acknowlege that the sheer scale of the protocol violations in the Anthrax investigation suggest political motives.

Responsible Americans who believe in holding our government accountable for its actions should read Case Closed to be more informed of the facts of the case, regardless of whether they come to agree with the author's theory. More investigation is needed.

I strongly recommend the book.

Format: Kindle Edition
I was privileged to have the opportunity to read this book "pre-publication". It was delivered to me in segment and it was torture. After each segment, I hounded the author for the next one. When you realize that the book is based on real facts, it makes it that much more exciting. At times it seems unreal that we actually lived through these times. It makes it really close to home. The whole Anthrax episode is unquestionably a dark moment in American history. But what makes it fascinating is how it was handled (or should I say mishandled) by the administration and the various agency involved. The books is a must read for anyone who wandered "what really happened? Who did it? and why?" and finally, why didn't they tell us the truth. Enjoy!

Lew Weinstein addresses this case with the pen of a highly skilled investigator. As the facts develop, and the characters weigh in, the story becomes an engaging and thought provoking ride that you will want to stay on until you know the truth. The questions asked here stretch the seams of terror with unbelievable possiblilities. A must read for anyone wondering how the anthrax scare could have happened in our own back yard.

This scary scenario is as close to truth as fiction can come. The plot is about anthrax attacks, a biological insurgency that doesn't involve guns, bombs, or armies. Lew Weinstein is a meticulous researcher and a determined storyteller. This book will keep you up at night -- reading, then worrying.
