Drew Peterson Exposed: Polygraphs Reveal the Shocking Truth about Stacy Peterson and Kathleen Savio.(2008)
A non fiction book by Derek Armstrong
Exposing the never-before-published polygraph results of Drew Peterson's testimony, this illuminating expose reveals new details in one of the most provocative and high profile criminal investigations in the country. October 28, 2008 marks the one year anniversary of Stacy Peterson's disappearance from her home in Bollingbrook, Illinois. Since then, her husband Drew Peterson has been at the center of a media storm which shows no sign of abating - and this book is sure to stir it up. Peterson, a former police sergeant, is a person of interest in the disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy, and in the death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio. He has not been charged in either case, but he has been been excoriated in the media, and found guilty in the court of public opinion. Drawing on hundreds of hours of exclusive taped interviews with Peterson and his family, polygraphs and a the first publicly published time-line from the suspect, this journalistic inquiry presents the arguments for and against Peterson's involvement in these cases with an impartial eye and takes the reader inside the head of a suspect. Drew Peterson's own timeline for the nights of Kathleen's death and Stacy's disappearance are revealed here for the first time, as well as the startling results of the two polygraph tests he agreed to undergo for this book. Peterson was questioned by examiner Lee McCord, a thirty-four-year expert in the polygraph, regarding his involvement in the death of Kathleen and the disappearance of Stacy. The results of these tests, the evidence, and testimony assembled here shed new light on the details of the police investigations, motives and alternative theories of the case. Conflicting witness accounts, false leads, widespread rumors, and red herrings that have dogged the investigation are analyzed and 140 photographs and documents (including many private family photos published here for the first time) take the reader beyond the headlines to the heart of this sensational story. The frank and often unsavory portrait of Drew Peterson that emerges is bound to provoke further controversy.
