Steerforth Press

Steerforth Press was founded in 1993. Our only tests of a book’s worth are whether it has been written well, is intended to engage the full attention of the reader, and has something new or important to say.

Now in Paperback: Hanover Publisher Services:
Gripping true crime narrative finds nothing positive in the media’s handling of the story [that] became gospel before anyone could measure it against reality Dogged investigative research at its relentless and compassionate best.
