Two small-town attorneys who outraged the nation defending a hated man; the detective who desperately sought answers to the whereabouts of missing women; the unveiling of a modern-day serial killer; and the author who witnessed the drama firsthand.

In the summer of 1973—following a series of murders and the disappearance of a young Boston University woman in the Adirondack Mountains—revered New York State Police Senior Investigator Henry McCabe leads the largest manhunt in state history to catch suspect Robert Garrow. In Syracuse, New York, Garrow’s attorney, Frank Armani, watches closely. Armani has successfully defended Garrow in the past, thus keeping the parolee from returning to prison, and now feels partly responsible for the murders. In an unusual move, he issues a public plea for his client to turn himself in and let the legal process play out before anyone else is killed.

Jim Tracy | 17 comments Jim Tracy’s Sworn to Silence is an unforgettable story of
two American lawyers who did the unprecedented. They
searched for, found, and photographed the lifeless bodies
of their client’s victims and then kept it secret. They did
so in the face of unendurable pressure from the
authorities and the victims’ families, who suspected the
lawyers knew more than they were saying.
When the American public eventually learned of the
lawyers’ actions, they were horrified, outraged, and
vengeful. People could not fathom how two attorneys—
fathers of teenage girls themselves—and supposed
officers of the law, could conduct themselves in a
manner seemingly beyond any concept of humanity.
Today, this landmark legal case is studied and analyzed
in law schools worldwide.
These events have been indelibly marked in Tracy’s mind
since he was eight years old; in fact, he was present at
the scene of New York state’s largest manhunt after the
killer broke into Tracy’s father’s hunting camp in the
Adirondack Mountains. In Sworn to Silence, Tracy
weaves together a true crime narrative that should rank
with some of the most compelling American crime stories
of modern times. He does so while taking you—the
reader—on a page-turning journey back to the early
1970s, unveiling an American serial killer most people
have never heard of. (less)
