Author Lisa Belkin will discuss her new book Genealogy of a Murder: Four Generations, Three Families, One Fateful Night, a multi-generational tale of three families whose paths collide one summer night in 1960 with the murder of a police officer.
Independence Day weekend, 1960. A young cop is murdered, shocking his close-knit community in Stamford. The killer remains at large, his identity still unknown. But on a beach not far away, a young Army doctor, on vacation from his post at a research lab in a maximum security prison, faces a chilling realization: He knows who the shooter is. In fact, the man—a prisoner out on parole—had called him only days before. By helping his former charge and trainee, the doctor, a believer in second chances, may have inadvertently helped set the murder into motion. And with that one phone call, may have sealed a policeman’s fate.
