Escanaba Library Author Talk: Rod Sadler

May 16 @ 6:00 pm

Join us at the Escanaba Public Library on Thursday, May 16 at 6:00 p.m. for an Author Talk with Michigan Notable Author, Rod Sadler and his recent book, Grim Paradise: The Cold Case Search for the Mackinac Island Killer.

About the book– When widow Frances Lacey was murdered in July 1960 on Mackinac Island, only a few meager clues were found by police, and the case soon turned cold. But more than sixty years later, will those same clues finally solve the mystery?  On July 24, 1960, the quaint charm and serenity of Mackinac Island, nestled in Lake Huron between Michigan’s Upper and Lower Peninsulas, was shattered by Lacey’s brutal death. Despite a massive manhunt and thousands of pages of police reports, her killer was never caught.

Now, in GRIM PARADISE, true crime author Rod Sadler delves into the secrets of one of Michigan’s most perplexing murder cases. Offering an in-depth and suspenseful account of the long-standing mystery, he poses the question: Could advanced DNA technology lead to the identity of the Mackinac Island murderer as it did recently in the case of the Golden State Killer?  Find out in GRIM PARADISE: The Cold Case Search for the Mackinac Island Killer.
