- ORANGEVILLE, ON, CANADA, September 20, 2008 - Drew Peterson Exposed
( Kunati Books
, Oct 1, 2008) follows investigative author Derek Armstrong's
investigation into new evidence in the disappearance of Stacy Peterson and death of Kathleen Savio. The new evidence and contents of the book remain under strict embargo until October 1, 2008, when the key points will be revealed on national television.
October 28, 2008 marks the one year anniversary of Stacy Peterson's disappearance. Since then, her husband Drew Peterson has been at the center of a media storm which shows no sign of abating—his most recent appearance on national television was one of the highest-rated television segments this year.
He is a person of interest in the disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson in October 2007, and his involvement in the death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, is now under renewed police scrutiny. To date Drew Peterson has been charged only with a gun-related crime.
As a introduction to the new evidence, the author draws on hundreds of hours of exclusive interviews with Drew Peterson in this journalistic inquiry based on a complete private investigation. Drew Peterson has not read the book and was quick to accept an invitation to respond to the book's findings on National Television, scheduled for September 30, 2008.
"For months we've guarded the contents of Drew Peterson Exposed, working under strict non-disclosure agreements," said author Derek Armstrong. Armstrong hopes the embargo will remain intact until the national broadcast and the broad release of the book on October 1, 2008.
The facts and testimony assembled here presents new evidence, sheds new light on the details of the existing police investigations, the possible timelines, and the motives ascribed to Peterson. Conflicting witness accounts, false leads, widespread rumors, and red herrings that have dogged the case are analyzed and 140 photographs and documents (including many private family photos published here for the first time) go beyond the headlines to the heart of this sensational story. The frank and unvarnished portrait of Drew Peterson that emerges is bound to provoke further controversy.
