Plague of Justice by Stan Turel

Early one morning, the head bookkeeper opened the office and went in to start her morning duties.  When she found the owner laying on the floor with blood clotting around him, she knew her life was forever changed.  Now imagine being that man's son and having to deal with the fact that someone murdered your father...

The author sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you).  You can get a copy from Amazon for your reading pleasure.

This is true crime and it's a heart-breaking story.  If Stan had not persisted in his own investigation, I doubt the killers would have been charged with the crime.  

The story is very detailed and goes over every action Stan took to try to prove that the man that refused to take a lie detector test was the killer or somehow involved.  He did illegal wire taps, pushed the man into a temper to try to get evidence, and never gave up.  His dedication to his cause even gained him a segment on 60 minutes with Morley Safer.  Mr. Safer was the one who said he should write a book about this case.

Stan is doing well now, but this moment impacted his life and changed the direction of his career.  How people react after tragedy shows the strength of their character.  Stan had a strong one in his youth and it got bigger when trying to solve this murder.

Here is an opportunity read one man's story about he helped solve the murder of his own father.  It's worth the read.

I do enjoy true crime stories but like Ann Rule when she figures them out, not having to watch a son step up to the plate and deal with all the emotions on top of losing his father. This is much more common than I had realized from movies of the week that have been playing here lately.
