Investigator Doc Martini joins the search for the killer of a young woman in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing. A body in a seminary garden, exorcisms, police corruption and abusive relationships all come to light in the thriller.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Rumors” by L.D. Bergsgaard.

The more Doc studies the old case, the more he’s convinced the wrong person has been blamed.

(PRWEB) January 16, 2013 -- The discovery of a young woman’s body in the vineyard at St. Peter Seminary becomes more than a death investigation when the sheriff office’s chief detective shows up and confirms Becky Zimmer’s killer had already confessed but the body had never been found. As far as the deputy is concerned, the case is closed because the killer, her brother, has been locked up for years. This new novel centers on experienced investigator Doc Martini, who happened to be on the scene and becomes intrigued with the find.

In “Rumors,” Doc follows a trail of his own, and suspicions turn to the priests who live at the seminary. The holy place may not be as peaceful as it appears because some of the priests were sent there as punishment for bad behavior. The new sheriff has reason to keep any potential scandal quiet but agrees to let Doc open an official investigation. The more Doc studies the old case, the more he’s convinced the wrong person has been blamed for killing Becky. The story takes some twists and turns, such as when Becky’s abused sister, Sarah, begins talking, a crooked cop’s evil deeds come to light, and Doc learns one of the original suspects isn’t dead after all. Can he resolve it or will evil win out once again?

Author L.D. Bergsgaard spent nearly 30 years in law enforcement before retiring, serving as a special agent with the U.S. Department of Treasury and the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, working with SWAT, covert operations, undercover narcotics investigations and domestic terrorist investigations. Bergsgaard volunteers with the Pima County Sheriff’s Department. His series of Doc Martini books has drawn positive reviews.
