A handsome, high-profile and tenacious defense attorney. Three elusive suspects. An investigation that stretches across four decades. And two frenetic murder trials. “Decades of Doubt: the John McCabe Murder Saga” is a gripping true-life mystery that follows the case of a 15-year-old boy bound and strangled in Massachusetts in 1969, the ensuing investigation that continues for over forty years, and the shocking events of the resulting trials.

As defense counsel for one of three men charged with the crime, New Hampshire attorney Eric Wilson undermines the State’s evidence, destroys the credibility of the prosecution’s star witness, and overcomes insurmountable odds in an attempt to bankrupt the prosecution’s case.
