When Kurt Sonnenfeld calls police to report his young, beautiful wife is dying with a bullet in her head, he alleges she shot herself. Police think otherwise. Prosecutors claim that hidden behind the façade of the charming videographer were personal issues that eroded his relationship with his advertising executive wife, Nancy, who filed separation papers. He is arrested for murder but soon is released. However, a rising star in the Denver prosecutor’s office is convinced he is guilty and a warrant has again been issued for his arrest. But Sonnenfeld has already left the country.
Although still a murder suspect, Sonnenfeld has become one of the most visible public figures in his new home in Buenos Aires, Argentina, as he fights extradition. Sonnenfeld, a former FEMA employee, claims his footage of Ground Zero in the week after 9/11 proves that top United States government officials were aware of the 2001 terrorist attacks before they occurred and that he is a victim of a U.S. plot to silence him.
The Spin Doctor tells the fascinating story of a man indicted for murder who has convinced people of influence that he is not a cold-hearted killer, but instead a brave hero.
