Joe McGinniss, author of the best-selling 1983 true crime book “Fatal Vision,” is dead.  He was 71.  McGinniss died Monday at UMass Memorial Medical Center after a two-year battle with prostate cancer. 

“Fatal Vision” dealt with the murder case of former Green Beret doctor Jeffrey MacDonald.  McGinniss’ bestseller “The Selling of the President 1968″ examined Richard Nixon’s 1968 presidential run. 

He later made headlines in 2010 when he moved next door to Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to write his book “The Rogue,” which Palin said contained lies and rumors presented as fact.
