Meeting authors is always fun, but it means something more when that author lives in San Diego and writes about famous murder cases.
New York Times bestselling author Caitlin Rother will be at the La Jolla Library in February to discuss some of her newest books. Here are some of Rother’s books that will be talked about at the event:
- First up, Rother has updated her 2005 book Poisoned Love, the story of Kristin Rossum, who worked in the medical examiner’s office, who cheats on her husband. Rossum also had drug addiction. In order to cover up her affair and her drug addiction, which would get her fired from the medical examiner’s office, Rossum steals Fentanyl and poisons her husband, making his death look like a suicide.
- This story is about two beauty school entrepreneurs, one from La Jolla and one from Pacific Beach, who were brutally murdered. Ken Goode, a San Diego police undercover narcotics detective investigates the homicide and learns that people involved in the two women’s business are ending up dead.
Rother will also will be promoting her other books, like Dead Reckoning (documents the murder of a Newport Beach couple by former child-actor Skylar Deleon), and My Life, Deleted (a memoir about former NFL player, and Rother’s co-author, Scott Bolzan and the serious head injury that left him with amnesia).
Rother has just finished her ninth book. Her eighth book, which will be released in July, is called Lost Girls and will be an in-depth look at killer John Gardner and his two San Diego victims, Chelsea King and Amber DuBois.
