His story sounds like true crime fiction. In fact, the twists and turns in the journey of former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez from superstar to convicted murderer seems too fantastic to be true. Except it's all real. Who better to tell the story than James Patterson, best-selling author of pulse-pounding thrillers? Patterson traces Hernandez’s early life to the days after his jail cell suicide in Boston last April. He and his co-authors Alex Abramovich and Mike Harvkey delved deep to uncover details and to connect the dots in Hernandez’s chaotic past, including troubling friendships, a family tragedy and the chameleon-like aspect of the football star's personality. It's all in his latest thriller, “All-American Murder: The Rise and Fall of Aaron Hernandez, The Superstar Whose Life Ended On Murderer's Row.”
