Overview

Hollywood. Saturday night. A broken taillight leads to a routine traffic stop. It shouldn't have changed the lives of the four men involved, but it did. The Onion Field is the frighteningly true story of a fatal collision of destinies that would lead two young cops and two young robbers to a deserted field on the outskirts of Los Angeles, towards a bizarre execution and its terrible aftermath. "A distinguished 'factual novel.'A fascinating account of a double tragedy: one physical, the other psychological."-Truman Capote
