A Death in White Bear Lake: The True Chronicle of an All-American Town

'“Fascinating . . . A work of compelling narrative force and enduring value, A Death in White BearLake guides us along an increasingly clear path—from horror to enlightenment.” —The New York Times Book Review   “Telling detail . . . and crack research . . . [fill] Barry Siegel’s book. But those are not the only authorial virtues displayed. There’s the book’s very structure, which keeps the revelations coming, one right after the next. Then too there’s the restraint. Siegel lets the players damn themselves as they reminisce about the case . . . And Siegel manages, despite the widespread national publicity the case received, to keep suspense high.” —The Washington Post   “Fascinating reading.” —Detroit Free Press   “One of the most startling nonfiction books of the year.” —Playboy   “Chilling in its exactness and precise in its details.” —Star News (Pasadena)   “Siegel doesn’t spare the reader . . . emphatically indicting a society that looks the other way.” —Kirkus Reviews   “If ever anyone needs to be convinced that child abuse cuts across sociological lines, this is the book to read.” —The San Diego Union   “To read it is to stare steadily through the windowpane at the vicious underside of middle-class respectability.” —Omaha Metro Update   “[Siegel] tells a great deal about ordinary people dealing with extraordinary circumstances.” —The Boston Herald   “A haunting story . . . Siegel is one of the finest reporters we have. He does not stop where others do; he keeps probing deeper and deeper until he strikes gold—that place where we come face-to-face with ourselves.” —Sara Davidson, New York Times–bestselling author   “Remarkable . . . Engrossing . . . Immensely shocking . . . The court drama is gripping and its conclusion just right.” —Minneapolis Star-Tribune  '
