WITH ONE SHOT resulted from the 1970 murder of Dorothy Marcic‘s uncle Vernie in Oregon, Wisconsin. Vernie’s wife Suzanne confessed to the murder but many of the facts didn’t add up.

In this explosive new book, Dorothy hopes to set the record straight and find justice for the murder that’s affected her family for decades. “Marcic uses her incredible talent as a playwright to impart mystery, suspense and sheer investigative guts on every page of this rapid-fire true-life thriller!” – New York Times bestselling author M.
