 The Last Christmas Of JonBenet Ramsey can be purchased at this site  by clicking 'Purchase Book' at top of page, and is also available for  digital Kindle-like devices at This 420-page book  is written in documentary and scenario style, rather than how true  crime books are traditionally written with pictures, flourishing  metaphors, and entertaining nuances, as I believed that this  book  should be presented in a style similar to what a prosecutor would  employ when addressing a jury. 

 Following is an overview of this book, a writing that seeks to determine who is responsible for the heretofore unsolved murder of  celebrity 6-year-old JonBenet Ramsey that occurred over Christmas  night 1996 in Boulder, Colorado:  

​In building a persuasive case for naming JonBenet's killer, complete crime scenarios are presented wherein suspect types who could have remotely been responsible for this crime are inserted to determine the plausibility of considering them as a viable suspect. Various members of the Ramsey family are also placed in murder scenarios to determine who (if any) can be regarded as a viable suspect. 

Popularly held theories regarding JonBenet's death that exclude Patsy Ramsey and an intruder as suspects are explored to determine at what point the respective theory is no longer plausible and implodes under the weight of its own incredulity. A chapter is devoted to an exhaustive psycho-linguistic analysis of the infamous ransom letter and its author, that serves to further support the definitive naming of her killer. 

Explanations are provided to questions that the public has long sought answers to, including: Who killed JonBenet and why? What were the circumstances surrounding her death? What were the conditions and causes that contributed to the killer's motive(s)? And what logic and psychological factors were at play that directed the actions taken by the killer. including the crime's elaborate and over-staged cover-up that was designed to project the crime onto a sexual predator type suspect?        

From the publisher: There has been no comprehensive in-depth analysis taken from a multidimensional perspective of this infamous murder case as undertaken by this author. Here, Laurence Smith purports to show beyond reasonable doubt not only the suspect types who could not have committed this unspeakable crime, based on existing forensic evidence along with the psychopathology characteristics that would have been present but weren't, but conclusively who the actual killer could only have been. 

Mr. Smith's compelling and brilliant expose of this infamous crime reflects his masterful understanding of the logic, forensics, and psychological factors that comprised the crime, enabling him in the process to arrive at a definitive finding that is more than credible.
