Meet Stephanie Kane: Author of True Crime Redux

The community is invited to hear local crime and award-winning author Stephanie Kane who will speak about her new release True Crime Redux on Wednesday, May 17, 7 pm via the Zoom platform. The book recounts Kane’s personal experience with an Arapahoe County murder 50 years ago. The presentation will be followed by an audience Q&A.  

The murder of Betty Frye had gone unpunished for decades when Kane, ex-wife of Betty’s son, first decided to tell her story by fictionalizing the homicide. The result was the novel Quiet Time, which helped bring a forgotten cold case roaring back to life. In her newest book, True Crime Redux, Kane depicts the events leading up to the murder and its fascinating, decades-long aftermath. It offers a raw, revealing look at the criminal justice system from the vantage point of a lawyer with the shoe suddenly on the other foot – thrust into the role of witness in a cold case investigation and prosecution.  

Kane is a lawyer and award-winning author of seven crime novels. After graduating from law school, she was a corporate partner at a top Denver law firm before becoming a criminal defense attorney. She has lectured on money laundering and white-collar crime and given workshops across the country on writing technique. Her crime novels have won a Colorado Book Award for Mystery and two Colorado Authors League Awards for Genre Fiction. 

Additional copies of Kane’s books will be available to purchase from The Bookies via
