Author/Investigator Steve Hodel announces the Pending Publication of a New Murder Investigation “Case Solved” Embargoed Until August 22 2019

July 24, 2019
Los Angeles, California
104’F (ouch!)

I will be publishing my solution to a  yet unrevealed murder investigation with a tentative launch date of AUGUST 22, 2019. (Yep, a Virgo this time.)
It is a —-ty-year-old infamous Cold Case murder that has remained unsolved for decades.

For those readers that are aware of my ongoing “Early Years” investigations, no this is not that book, which is probably a year or more away from publication, as I am actively conducting the simultaneous investigations and summaries on each of those separate crimes.

Stay tuned- 29 Days and counting.

p.s. If your reading this in the LA area stay out of the heat. Go see an A/C movie. I’m thinking maybe Hollywood Arclight Lion King?

    Is this a murder that you have previously mentioned or attributed to GHH?

      Hi Brian. No. This crime has never been referenced in any of my previous books or investigations.
      All NEW material. Steve

      If that ^ doesn’t violate the embargo 😉

      Brian W: Just checked with the publisher and he got right back to me. “Awesome” does in no way violate the embargo. Thanks. skh

      Ellece Bill-Schmitz: Yes, hope to get it out in about three weeks or so? Shooting for a launch date of Aug 22nd. Best, Steve

    Are pre-orders possible?

    Jim S:

    Let me mull on that. Since it’s embargoed I can put it up on Amazon for pre-orders with a blank cover, but. Maybe I’ll put up an announcement for those that might want a personalized copy they could make a payment through PayPal to my email address. I’m charging $16.95 on Amazon, so maybe price it at $24.00 for a personalized/signed copy that they could pay through PayPal to my email address and I mail out personally. Steve
