8:36 am
journalism at princeton and wrote other stories and books about crimes and always wanted to look at his brother's death. i think what really moved him finally to write the book was his father gilbert cushner died in 2010, and he felt that he wanted to really know the story, and he ended up -- this is an unusual memoire, in it's reported he reported his brother's death as a journalist would, so it's both a personal memoire and a kind of reported true crimes story and he said to me i finally solved this mystery for myself. >> reporter: that's got to make this book very unique. >> it is. >> reporter: from that perspective. tell me about the book's title. >> reporter: algator condy, the
