Ep 33 3 Decades Cold Maria Jefferson and Chris McMullin True Crime, Authors & Extraordinary People

    • True Crime

In this episode, I talk to author and detective Chris McMullen and author Maria Viola Jefferson about their book 'Three Decades Cold.' The book tells the story of Chris's career as a detective and his work on cold cases. The conversation covers topics such as the process of writing the book, the challenges of being a left-handed person, the reality of police work compared to TV shows, and the emotional impact of solving cold cases.

 The book focuses on four specific cases, including the story of Lisa Todd, a Jane Doe who was finally identified after 19 years. The conversation explores the impact of cold cases on the detective and writer, as well as the importance of perseverance and dedication in solving these cases. It also touches on the Christopher Dorner case and the issue of the 'blue line' in law enforcement. The book, 'Three Decades Cold,' aims to inspire readers and shed light on the reality of unsolved missing persons cases.
