Draws on new forensic evidence, police reports, and the case tapes of a private investigator to explore questions surrounding the apparent suicide of Kurt Cobain.

Blackwell North Amer
On Friday, April 8, 1994, a body was discovered in a room above a garage in Seattle. For the attending authorities, it was an open-and-shut case of suicide. What no one knew then, however, and which is only being revealed here for the very first time, is that the person found dead that day - Kurt Cobain, the superstar frontman of Nirvana - was murdered.
In early April 1994, Cobain went missing for days, or so it seemed; in fact, some people knew where he was, and one of them was Courtney Love. Now a star in Hollywood and rock music, in early 1994 she was preparing to release her major label debut with her band, Hole, and what she knew then, though few others did, was that Cobain was planning to divorce her. Love & Death paints a critical portrait of Courtney Love; it also reveals for the first time the case tapes made by Love's own P.I., Tom Grant, a man on a mission to find the truth about Kurt Cobain's demise; and introduces us to a number of characters who feature in various theories about plots to kill Cobain. In addition, Cobain's grandfather goes public, charging that his grandson was murdered. Drawing on new forensic evidence and police reports obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, the book explodes the myths that Cobain took his own life, and reveals that the official scenario was scientifically impossible.

This book keeps you interested. It's hard to put down. It tells the story of what the author believes happened to Kurt Cobain and who the involved people were that could have contributed to his death. It tells of his last days before his death and the events that led up to his last days on earth.Several people were interviewed in this book and the ending is a real eye opener. It's also very moving and heartbreaking.The book has some pictures of Kurt as a child and other interesting photos in the middle of book.
