“Riveting… a personal and highly original work of true-crime storytelling.” — John Douglas, former FBI criminal profiling pioneer and co-author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Mindhunter
A chilling investigation into the unsolved “boy in the woods” murder; journalist Jim Cosgrove chronicles his decades-long struggle to uncover the truth of a family friend’s disappearance and death.
Riveting, honest, and raw, I Can Take It From Here recounts Lisa Forbes’s harrowing journey into darkness — including a fourteen-year-long stint in a maximum-security prison — and her fierce resolve to understand the effects of the trauma she endured, to take personal responsibility for her actions, and to ensure that her history does not dictate her destiny.
“Great storytelling about the history and importance of the First Amendment, from someone who has spent his life defending — and using — it.” —Mary Beth Tinker
