His untimely death in April 1994 was instantly labelled a suicide, a predictable rock n roll tragedy, and his millions of fans resigned themselves to the loss of their angst ridden hero.But was it really the obvious suicide his fans accepted?Now Ian Halperin and Max Wallace, joint winners of the internationally renowned Rolling Stone magazine award for Investigative Journalism, have bought their combined talents to this complex case, to reveal an array of alarming inconsistencies:• Why were no legible fingerprints discovered on the shotgun Cobain supposedly shot himself with?• Who was using his credit card after his death?• Why were there two sets of handwriting on the so-called suicide note?• How was Cobain able to put his drug paraphernalia away neatly, having taken an overdose that would have sent him into an instant coma?In their search for the truth, Halperin and Wallace reveal a selection of subversive characters, including:• the father who accused his own daughter of murdering Cobain• the Beverly Hills private detective who unequivocally dismissed the suicide verdict - declaring Cobains death to be murder• the Los Angeles musician who claimed he had been offered $50,000 to kill Cobain, passed a lie detector test by the worlds top polygraph expert - and was mysteriously found dead soon afterwardsNow, this invaluable investigation into Cobains tragic and premature death offers compelling and credible reasons for reopening this suicide case - so that fans will know how their hero really died.
