A true story of justice, adventure and crime and an exposé of what really happened in Peterson’s life between 1985 and 2013

The life of Stephen C. Peterson seems to be made of the stuff of movies. In his recently released autobiography titled “In Search of a Straight Line” (published by Xlibris), Peterson shares how he became entangled with underworld kingpins and ended up running for his life.

Like most people, Peterson wanted to live the American Dream with his wife, Mary. His life, however, took an unexpected twist when they became involved with the mob. What ensued next was a cat-and-mouse chase filled with danger and intrigue as the couple attempted not just to fight for the truth but for their very lives.

“In Search of a Straight Line” is a true story of justice, adventure and crime and an exposé of what really happened in Peterson’s life between 1985 and 2013. He describes not just the dangers he faced but how he ultimately overcame the odds and managed to achieve what he calls “a straight line.”

“People have been duped and murdered throughout this chase of a lifetime,” Peterson says, “Ultimately, all the things that blocked my attempt at a straight line have been conquered.”
