After assassinating San Francisco Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk, killer Dan White was given only a mild sentence for manslaughter. This true crime thriller explains why White killed the two politicians, and how he got away with murder. This new expanded edition reveals for the first time how after his release from prison White confessed his true murderous intent and his secret plan to kill two more politicians. A companion DVD provides unseen television interviews and the never-before-available recording of White's gut-wrenching confession.
