Announcing the Release of Dead Man's Dancer

Epicenter Press announces the release of Dead Man's Dancer, a new true crime by Tom Brennan. 

Kenmore, WA.--On July 15, 2015, Epicenter Press will release Dead Man's Dancer ($12.95, paperback, 146 pp., ISBN 978-1-935347-16-3), the story of Mechele Linehan and the murder of Kent Leppink. Click the cover image above for more information. It will also be available as an eBook. 

Mechele is young, attractive, and looking to cash in on her aesthetic assets when she moves from New Orleans to Alaska in 1994 to earn money for college tuition. Her charms ensnare the affections of three men, and the combined effects of jealously, lust, and greed take a deadly turn in this true crime story. Before a murder in the woods shatters her contented life, Mechele works as an exotic dancer at the Alaska Bush Company, where she spends her days pleasing a procession of hard-working men. John, Scott, and Kent are simultaneously smitten with Mechele, and offer affection in the form of lavish gifts and ultimately engagement rings. While the three men begin their affairs on the same path, violent murder blasts apart their parallel lives. One of the trio is shot in the back; another is accused of the murder. Dead Man's Dancer follows this murder case from 1996 throughout Mechele's tumultuous trial in 2006 that becomes a nationwide sensation. Shocking in its detailed portrayal of murder and convoluted love affairs, Dead Man's Dancer excites horror in readers that lingers far after the last page is turned.

This is author Tom Brennan's fifth book. A native of Massachusetts, Tom Brennan is a newspaper columnist and witty fellow who cut his teeth in journalism on the police beat. He moved to Alaska in 1967. He is a communications consultant, newspaper columnist, former oilman, and self-described "recovering fly-fisherman." He and his wife, Marnie, live in Anchorage.
