From Waukesha native Dorothy Marcic comes «With One Shot: Family Murder and a Search for Justice,» the story behind the brutal Wisconsin murder of LaVerne Stordock, a former police detective and family man.
On the surface, the case seemed closed with the confession of Stordock’s wife, Suzanne. But the trail of secrets and lies that began with his death did not end with his widow’s insanity plea.
Marcik, the victim’s niece, now a playwright, professor, and theatrical producer, couldn’t put her doubts to rest, and in 2014, she set about to uncover the truth. The result is a spellbind tale of unmet justice and the truth behind a personal tragedy.
“A riveting, personal story of the American justice system.”
—Kaylie Jones, author of Lies My Mother Never Told Me
“A rapid-fire, real-life thriller.”
—New York Times bestselling author M. William Phelps
