    Finding Jacob Wetterling - The 27-Year Investigation From Kidnapping to Conclusion

    While I was writing the first book, someone jokingly said to me that 50 Shades of Gray had started out as a self-published book by an unknown author, and who knows, maybe your book will be published one day. I really had no aspirations or expectations of that happening...but this past summer I was a approached by a leading publisher of non-fiction books...and, well,...that's about to actually happen. More details coming soon!

    Wanted you all to be the first to know...

    Hats off once again to LE for ending the mystery. It didn't matter if you found heinrich, le did that back in 89, and the reality is they never did forget about him. But they needed more, they needed technology to advance. Once it did, they were able to act on him again. What mattered was getting him behind bars with a deal he couldn't resist for confession. LE threw the books away and did just that.

    I am looking forward to reading your book. Even though the case has been solved, my interest in it remains as strong as it did back in 1989.

    I look forward to reading it. I think your writing will really benefit from a professional editor helping you really tighten things up. The finished product is going to be great. Congratulations.

    Thank you!


    I agree. I just read over the proofs this week weekend, and this is going to be a much leaner, tighter story, with some added details. I'm honored that this highly regarded publisher with a long track record of high quality non-fiction books has selected my book as their premier offering in the true-crime genre.

    It's coming out at a very affordable price, and will be available for preorder soon. Details are still being worked out, but my hope is that I'll also be able to provide the book via mail order (signed) for the same price. I believe it will also be available in audio format.

    Fantastic! I wish you great success. You have been a great source of accurate information in this case amongst some of the completely off base posters.

    Congrats!

    Pretty sad that it took hiring a lawyer on DR'S part to get his things back. Any lawyer out there is charging at the min 100 dollars per hour. I called for his immediate redemption the day we found out what happened-apologizing, returning his things, and clearing his name. Stearns County failed to reach out to Dan, instead choosing a path of fighting his resurgence to innocence.
