Dorothy Marcic presents "With One Shot: Family Murder and a Search for Justice"

The lovely widow had confessed to the coldblooded murder of her husband. But Dorothy Marcic suspected a more sinister tale at the heart of her beloved uncle's violent death. 

The brutal murder of LaVerne Stordock, a respected family man and former police detective, shocked his Wisconsin community. 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.

Dorothy Marcic, a playwright, theatrical producer, and university professor, couldn't put her doubts to rest. In 2014 she embarked on a two-year mission to uncover the truth. In the bestselling tradition of Ann Rule and M. William Phelps, With One Shot weaves a spellbinding tale of unmet justice and the truth behind a shocking family tragedy.

Dr. Dorothy Marcic is a playwright whose productions have played in over seventy cities, including over six years of her Off-Broadway musical, SISTAS, which has also aired on BET-TV. She is an adjunct professor at Columbia University and a former professor at Vanderbilt University in Nashville. She was a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Econ-Prague, has three masters and a doctorate, and is the author of fifteen books, including the bestsellers Understanding Management and RESPECT: Women and Popular Music. Dorothy has appeared on C-SPAN, CMT, and Bravo Network.
