Summary

The true story of heiress Sunny von Bülow’s coma and the attempted-murder trial of her husband, Claus—the case that inspired the film Reversal of Fortune. On December 21, 1980, millionaire socialite Sunny Von Bülow was found unconscious on her bathroom floor. She would remain in a coma for twenty-seven years. Although her condition appeared to be the result of hypoglycemia, Sunny’s children suspected their stepfather, the debonair Claus Von Bülow, of attempting to murder his wife and abscond with her fortune. Claus went on trial for attempted murder in 1982, initiating a legal circus that would last for years. In the greatest society trial of the twentieth century, the opulence of Newport and New York provides a backdrop for one of the most intriguing family feuds of all time. In this comprehensive account of the trial and its aftermath, Wright draws on court transcripts and interviews with those involved to present an unparalleled behind-the-scenes look into the legal proceedings as well as the Von Bülows’ private lives.

    I am a man standing on a speeding train. You are standing on the platform. If I reach out my hand to you, at least one of us is going to get hurt. This book, and my ‘911:five minutes to midnight’ are my attempt to ‘bring you up to speed’. Until you have read this book, your mind will be closed to the very important message many people are trying to share with you at this critical moment.
     
    This book explains what 911 really means. What happened. Who did what when. And why. It then places 911 in the context of the New World Order, Zionism, Central Banking, and the ‘shadow government’ that has been playing us all for fools for so long. This is probably your best chance at understanding what is going on. This is probably your last chance to change the course of events. Please make sure you read this as soon as you can, and get your friends to read it too. You could spend months searching for this information, and then years trying to ‘join the dots’. It has taken me decades to get to the stage where I can present the truth to anyone who is intellectually able, but more importantly, emotionally willing, to accept the truth. The whole truth may yet elude us, but I have presented enough of it to justify a compelling and urgent call to be put out to anyone who still believes in the idea of personal freedom, democracy, and justice. I have included compressed versions of the Old and New Testaments, ‘Mein Kampf’, and ‘The Protocols of The Elders of Zion’ so that you can place the current events in perspective. Once you understand how the U.S petro-dollar and Central Banking function, and how they tricked us all on 911, me included, you will be outraged at how the mass media have duped us all.

It seems that no sooner has one tragedy hit than stories of another are being flashed across our screens and printed in our papers. But it is undeniable that there are for every generation some crimes that will never be forgotten. Just as people remember where they were when they heard that President Kennedy had been shot, who can forget hearing the awful news of the attacks of September 11th? And who could shake off the revulsion they felt when the sickening details of the Fritzl case came to light? Indeed, the horrific nature of a handful of crimes has ensured that certain names will never be forgotten: James Bulger, Sally Anne Bowman, Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman...
