A chilling, groundbreaking investigation into the death of one of the great rock icons of our times -- including exclusive access to the case tapes of Courtney Love's former P.I., and a host of compelling new evidence.
On Friday, April 8, 1994, a body was discovered in a room above a garage in Seattle. For the attending authorities, it was an open-and-shut case of suicide. What no one knew then, however, is that the deceased -- Kurt Cobain, the superstar frontman of Nirvana -- had been murdered. Drawing on case tapes made by a P.I. hired by Courtney Love when her husband escaped from drug rehab and went missing -- and on new forensic evidence and police reports obtained under the Freedom of Information Act -- Love & Death explodes the long-standing theory that Kurt Cobain took his own life.
Award-winning investigative journalists Max Wallace and Ian Halperin have conducted a ten-year crusade for the truth, and in Love & Death they present a stunning, convincing argument that the whole truth has yet to be revealed.

Once I picked up this book I had a very difficult time putting it down. The authors are excellent in that they present the facts in a truly neutral way. I didn't feel like anyone was trying to twist my brain into believing some weird conspiracy theory. I'm still left wondering if Kurt was murdered or if he killed himself. What I am adamant about is that the investigation NEEDS to be reopened and looked at. There are way too many strange events and unanswered questions looming around for the case to just be written off.

This book keeps you interested. It's hard to put down. It tells the story of what the author believes happened to Kurt Cobain and who the involved people were that could have contributed to his death. It tells of his last days before his death and the events that led up to his last days on earth.Several people were interviewed in this book and the ending is a real eye opener. It's also very moving and heartbreaking.The book has some pictures of Kurt as a child and other interesting photos in the middle of book.
