As the host of the immensely popular "America's Most Wanted, John Walsh has been instrumental in the capture of nearly four hundred and fifty of this country's most dangerous fugitives. However, few know the full story of the personal tragedy behind his public crusade: the 1981 abduction and murder of his six-year-old son, Adam. Here, for the first time, Walsh, his wife Reve, and their closest friends tell the wrenching tale of Adam's death -- and the infuriating conspiracy of events that have kept America's No. 1 crime fighter from obtaining justice and closure for himself and his family. This is the powerful story of Walsh's transformation from grieving father to full-time activist, and how he enlarged the search for Adam's killer into an exhaustive, sixteen-year battle on behalf of thousands of missing and abused children.

Today, his actions have sparked an international victims' rights movement that gives a voice to the millions each year whose lives are touched by violent crime. The dramatic impact of John Walsh's fight for change is finally being felt among policy makers, law enforcement agencies, and parents. The heartbreaking story chronicled in "Tears of Rage" is, ultimately, the story of a true American hero: a man who challenged the system in the name of his son.
