Mardi Link returns to Schuler of Okemos

isadoressecret

Also blurbed in the Lansing City Pulse this week, Michigan true crime author Mardi Link will return to Schuler of Okemos for the Get A Clue Mystery reading group  next week  for an author talk and signing!

Join us at 7 p.m. Tuesday, October 20, for a chilling evening as we welcome back Mardi to discuss her latest true-crime book Isadore’s Secret. Mardi once again delves into Michigan’s murderous past to shed light on the disappearance of a nun from the Northern Michigan town of Isadore over 100 years ago. The disappearance had shocked the small community, but it would be a decade before the discovery of her skeleton buried in the floor of the church would turn those most trusted into suspects and send the town into a panic as the murder remained unsolved.

True crime author at Schuler’s

“Isadore’s Secret,” Mardi Link’s second true -rime novel, is a chilling look at a murder that took place more than 100 years ago in a small, West Michigan city. But it still has the ability to stir community outcry to curtail the book’s publishing a century after the crime was committed.

In 1907, a young nun disappeared in Isadore. Ten years passed before her bones were discovered in the church basement. Link follows the crime to its unsatisfying solution: the conviction of a church aide, which raised more questions than were answered.

Link adds new information through interviews with family members and a reinvestigation of the facts.

While working on the book, Link received threatening e-mails about a boycott of the book and asking her to abandon the project.
